Hi all, hopefully someone here can assist me with an LDAP issue. A
little background... I have had LDAP running in a master/slave
configuration for the past 5 months or so with no problems to report.
However recently I have had the slave server crash twice and the master
once. Parsing through the logs and with help from Nagios, I think I
have narrowed it down to LDAP (slapd). The following is an excerpt from
the slave server syslog file. After these lines occur, this is when all
hell breaks lose.
slapd: connection_read(36): input error=-2 id=2278, closing.
slapd: conn=2278 op=2 UNBIND
slapd: daemon: removing 36
slapd: conn=2278 fd=36 closed
Other things start breaking on the server because the authentication is
gone. So bad I cannot even console in as root (which is obviously local
and not in LDAP); I get a login timeout expired. The only option is too
reboot and then all is well for about 5 days or so and the problem
I haven't made any system changes other than a non-deb package I was
trying to install required some sysv stuff. Upon installing sysvinit
and sysvconfig, it hosed a lot of stuff by removing upstart. Thus I
reverted with this:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get purge
sysvinit sysvconfig && sudo apt-get install friendly-recovery
startup-tasks system-services upstart-logd upstart-compat-sysv upstart
&& sudo apt-get autoremove
Which from apt/term.log was everything that got removed. This is
basically the point when slapd started acting funny. I don't know if it
is related but the time lines mesh nicely.
Any help with this is much appreciated.
Version: 8.04.2 (Has been on .2 for awhile via proposed repository, so
it is not related to the problem.)
