Slaptest is used to check the conformance of the slapd(8)
configuration. It opens the slapd.conf(5) configuration file or the
slapd-config(5) backend, and parses it according to the general and
the backend-specific rules, checking its sanity.
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, slaptest will attempt to read the default
config directory before trying to use the default config file.
If a valid config directory exists then the default config
file is ignored. If dry-run mode is also specified, no
conversion will occur.
Just open and test the dbnum-th database listed in the
configuration file. To only test the config database
slapd-config(5), use -n 0 as it is always the first database.
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 Be extremely quiet: only the exit code indicates success (0)
or not (any other value).
-u enable dry-run mode (i.e. don't fail if databases cannot be
opened, but config is fine).
-v enable verbose mode.
