want to have my script :) ?

we had trouble with ldbm - it didn't crash but some entries simply were
missing after some minutes of running slapd, samba couldn't find some
users/groups although they were in the database, ldapsearch -x
uid=someuser sometimes returns "dn: uid=someuser" and sometimes not and
so on. may be it was a caching/indexing issue?

i know and already did that. but this list is good visited so i saw a
chance to find someone with the same problems or more experience
my old ldapservers run fine with ldbm. but there were only 30 users in
the DIT - not comparable to our new ldapserver for >1000 users
thx so far
