CA LDAP Server does not start - how can I find out what caused the problem
Release: Component: LDAPDV
When there are problems with the startup, the first place to start is with the STDERR file. Make sure you start the Server with the DEBUG=ANY parameter - this will give the most diagnostic information. The first thing to check is the last parameter that is specified in the STDERR file - just before the shutdown. An example statement could be something like this.
line 146 (suffix "host=SYSTEMA.CA.COM,o=CA,c=us")
If this was the last parameter referenced from slapd.conf then it would mean that there was most probably a problem with the suffix parameter. (in this instance there were two SUFFIX statements and they both had the same host definition).
It could be a problem with ANY parameter that is in slapd.conf. Start by reviewing each parameter in slapd.conf. Make sure that all parameters are valid Make sure each parameter shows in stderr - if not - it could be that the parameter is not starting in the first column and is therefore a comment.
If you see a problem with any of the parameters - make any necessary changes and restart the ldap server.
