i did install the openldap server using the following command:

sudo apt-get install slapd ldap-utils

it did install successfully. Funny thing thought is that it didn't provide me an init.d file.

tuba@foobar:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/slapd restart
sudo: /etc/init.d/slapd: command not found

Am I missing something? I was looking the "ubuntu howto" for this version and all schemas that i should load, located on /etc/ldap/schema/* doesn't exist, but the directory does.

tuba@foobar:~$ ls -l /etc/ldap/schema/
total 0

So Am I missing something? I'm using ubuntu 10.04

Follow steps on this link: OpenLDAP installation steps on Ubuntu 10.10 (french). It is in french, but check out commands, conf and LDIF as I done recently.

Additionnaly, you could try to reinstall packages:

$ sudo apt-get purge slapd ldap-utils
