slaptest - Check the suitability of the OpenLDAP slapd configuration
SBINDIR/slaptest [-d debug-level] [-f slapd.conf] [-F confdir] [-ndbnum] [-o option[=value]] [-Q] [-u] [-v]
Slaptest is used to check the conformance of the slapd(8) configuration. It opens the slapd.conf(5) configuration file or the slapd-config(5) backend, and parses it according to the general and the backend-specific rules, checking its sanity.
-d debug-level enable debugging messages as defined by the specified debug-level; see slapd(8) for details. -f slapd.conf specify an alternative slapd.conf(5) file. -F confdir specify a config directory. If both -f and -F are specified, the config file will be read and converted to config directory format and written to the specified directory. If neither option is specified, slaptest will attempt to read the default config directory before trying to use the default config file. If a valid config directory exists then the default config file is ignored. If dry-run mode is also specified, no conversion will occur. -n dbnum Just open and test the dbnum-th database listed in the configuration file. To only test the config database slapd-config(5), use -n 0 as it is always the first database. -o option[=value] Specify an option with a(n optional) value. Possible generic options/values are: syslog=<subsystems> (see `-s' in slapd(8)) syslog-level=<level> (see `-S' in slapd(8)) syslog-user=<user> (see `-l' in slapd(8)) -Q Be extremely quiet: only the exit code indicates success (0) or not (any other value). -u enable dry-run mode (i.e. don't fail if databases cannot be opened, but config is fine). -v enable verbose mode.
To check a slapd.conf(5) give the command: SBINDIR/slaptest -f /ETCDIR/slapd.conf -v
