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. If a list of
specific attributes is provided on the command line, only the indices
for those attributes will be regenerated. 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 option.
-c enable continue (ignore errors) mode.
enable debugging messages as defined by the specified debug-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 config database slapd-config(5), is
always the first database, so use -n 0
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.
This command provides ample opportunity for the user to obtain and
drink their favorite beverage.
