stupid slapd

In a project, I have to restart openldap’s slapd from another daemon.

This failed, with no reason, no log entry at all.

After some debugging I found out that slapd requires a terminal … just to vanish again a bit later into the daemon mode.

Ok, screen does the job:

screen -D -m /etc/init.d/ldap start
