I have created a base database with like this olcDatabase={0}config.ldif

    # CRC32 5ebe5cbf
    dn: olcDatabase={0}config
    objectClass: olcDatabaseConfig
    olcDatabase: {0}config
    olcAccess: {0}to * by dn.exact=gidNumber=0+uidNumber=0,cn=peercred,cn=external

to create another database i tried this, created a fio.ldif

dn: olcDatabase={2}hdb
objectClass: olcDatabaseConfig
objectClass: olcHdbConfig
olcDatabase: {2}hdb
olcDbDirectory: /var/ldap/lld
olcDbIndex: objectClass eq,pres
olcDbIndex: ou,cn,mail,surname,givenname eq,pres,sub
structuralObjectClass: olcHdbConfig
creatorsName: cn=config
olcSuffix: dc=linux,dc=com
olcRootDN: cn=Man,dc=linux,dc=com

when i added this new database as a seprated DIT i got this error.

ashokkrishna@10:36:04:~/Desktop$ ldapadd -x -D "cn=Manager,cn=config" -f fio.ldif -W
Enter LDAP Password: 
adding new entry "olcDatabase={2}hdb"
ldap_add: Server is unwilling to perform (53)
    additional info: no global superior knowledge

how to solve this? when i changed the olcDatabase={2}hdb to "olcDatabase={2}hdb,cn=config"

ashokkrishna@10:07:38:~/Desktop$ ldapadd -x -D "cn=Manager,cn=config" -f filp.ldif -W
Enter LDAP Password: 
adding new entry "olcDatabase={2}hdb,cn=config"
ldap_add: Constraint violation (19)
    additional info: structuralObjectClass: no user modification allowed

slapd isn't complaining about your olcsuffix. It's upset by your choosen dn.

You'll want to modify your .ldif to use dn: olcDatabase={2}hdb,cn=config.

Additionally, you cannot add or modify any operational attributes. (structuralObjectClass and creatorsName are two such attributes.)

  • I got an error by changing above. – ashok Jun 26 '15 at 4:39
  • after removing the specified attributes it succesfully added the database. but i am unable to login to the database and my old database lost its contents. – ashok Jun 29 '15 at 5:07
  • i got the error This base cannot be created with PLA for igr.com – ashok Jun 29 '15 at 5:09
  • may be this is because olcDbDirectory: /var/lib/ldap same folder. – ashok Jun 29 '15 at 5:10
  • @ashok It is definitely that. You should not have two databases trying to store data in the same place. (Your question had two different locations.) – 84104 Jun 29 '15 at 17:55
