Slapindex is used to regenerate slapd(8) indices based upon the current
contents of a database. It opens the given database determined by the
database number or suffix and updates the indices for all values of all
attributes of all entries. Databases configured as subordinate of this
one are also re-indexed, unless -g is specified.
All files eventually created by slapindex will belong to the identity
slapindex is run as, so make sure you either run slapindex with the
same identity slapd(8) will be run as (see option -u in slapd(8)), or
change file ownership before running slapd(8).
Use the specified suffix to determine which database to generate
output for. The -b cannot be used in conjunction with the -n
-c enable continue (ignore errors) mode.
enable debugging messages as defined by the specified level; see
slapd(8) for details.
specify an alternative slapd.conf(5) file.
specify a config directory. If both -f and -F are specified,
the config file will be read and converted to config directory
format and written to the specified directory. If neither
option is specified, an attempt to read the default config
directory will be made before trying to use the default config
file. If a valid config directory exists then the default config
file is ignored.
-g disable subordinate gluing. Only the specified database will be
processed, and not its glued subordinates (if any).
Generate output for the dbnum-th database listed in the
configuration file. The -n cannot be used in conjunction with
the -b option.
Specify an option with a(n optional) value. Possible generic
syslog=<subsystems> (see ‘-s’ in slapd(8))
syslog-level=<level> (see ‘-S’ in slapd(8))
syslog-user=<user> (see ‘-l’ in slapd(8))
-q enable quick (fewer integrity checks) mode. Performs no
consistency checks when writing the database. Improves indexing
time, however the database will most likely be unusable if any
errors or interruptions occur.
-t enable truncate mode. Truncates (empties) an index database
before indexing any entries. May only be used with Quick mode.
-v enable verbose mode.
Your slapd(8) should not be running (at least, not in read-write mode)
when you do this to ensure consistency of the database.
slapindex ought to be run as the user specified for slapd(8) to ensure
correct database permissions.
This command provides ample opportunity for the user to obtain and
drink their favorite beverage.
To reindex your SLAPD database, give the command:
To regenerate the index for only a specific attribute, e.g. "uid", give
ldap(3), ldif(5), slapadd(8), ldapadd(1), slapd(8)
