Turns out the the dse.ldif files were both empty, I copied from the
backup files, restarted, and everything worked fine. However I am
wondering how a situation like this can come about?
Me too.  Did you have a power failure?  kill -9 the directory server?

Hmm no, not directly at least. I suppose it is possible that init didn't
want to wait for it to shut down, and eventually killed it as  last
resort. I think that is the default behaviour of init, or well upstart I
guess. It does seem an odd way to deal with a kill though, nuke the
config file.

I did not mean to imply that it is the intentional behavior of the directory server to nuke the config file in response to a kill -9. It is most certainly not. I'm just trying to figure out what caused this so we can attempt to reproduce and fix the issue.


I have also seen this, but it's been a long time ago now, perhaps in the 2.0 beta days or around that time. And I did have an issue with power cuts at that time.

Siggi
