ldap 2.4

Greetings to all.

Here's one to break the deafening silence on the list.

Have any of you worked with ldap 2.4?

We have a much older version of ldap in production on old
out-of-warranty servers. We have several servers at more than one site
using master/slave and the old slurpd method of replication. We only
use ldap for linux login authentication (including host access
controls).

I've transferred the ldif of our existing system to a new oel6
(equivalent to rhel6 centos6 sl6) server at the latest maintenance
level, and the server works normally at first, but there are a couple
of glitches that are impeding progress. We don't yet have a
maintenance agreement for the new server, so I can't pursue these
problems with the vendor. The almighty google has not thus far yielded
any nuggets of wisdom. I'm wondering if any of you have any ideas?

1. The standard /etc/init.d/slapd start script has a couple of gotchas
that I've patched temporarily. The script attempts to crate a hard
link to the pidfile that fails, and this prevents 'service slapd stop'
from working.

2. I can't find any way to get anything written to the logfile at any
error level. The only google references I can find just talk about the
error leverls.

3. When I add the necessary parameters to slapd.conf to enable

DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH is not a supported variable name

Hopefully you fine Ubuntu fans can help me with a miserable problem
I'm seeing on every 11.10 box I've got.  Any time I invoke psql (the
postgresql command line client) it spews the following warning:
DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH is not a supported variable name at
/usr/bin/dpkg-architecture line 214.

it works fine after that, but the warning is filling up logs
everywhere, as we use psql a lot for automated database queries inside
of shell scripts.  After googling, I found the following bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/postgresql-common/+bug/862550

however, that bug claims this is fixed in the latest update, which is
not what I'm seeing.  I've already run 'apt-get install
postgresql-client-common' and it reports that I already have the
latest version.

Anyone else run into this and found a solution?

No idea, sorry. I have several 11.10 boxes running pg and don't remember ever 
seeing such an error.

Have you tried a complete uninstall/re-install of pg on some test box to see if 
that cleared it?

Could google "DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH is not a supported variable" help?

the only thing it reveals is that this was a known bug but is
supposedly fixed now.

How many boxes does this happen on?

8 and counting.  basically every single 11.10 system I've installed.

Are they the same machines, or different manufacturers, etc? I don't have pg installed here, or I'd try it. I will if no solution is found soon.

they're not identical.  some are actually installed inside of KVM,
others are on real HW.
