ldap restore from ldif file problem

by egulik1 / January 11, 2013 12:11 AM PST

I have a problem with restoring from a ldiff backup file that I did just recently using this command:
[CODE]$ ldapsearch -h localhost -p 1389 -D cn=admin -w somepassword -b "dc=somedomain,dc=com" "objectclass=*" |perl -p -0040 -e 's/\n //' >> 01102013.vl34.ldiff[/CODE]

I removed everything from ldap using Apache Directory Studio but when I tried using this command:

[CODE]$ sudo ldapadd -h localhost -p 1389 -x -D cn=admin -w somepassword -f 01102013.vl34.ldiff[/CODE]

I get this:
adding new entry "dc=somedomain,dc=com"
adding new entry "ou=services,dc=somedomain,dc=com"
and couple of more lines like that but then I get this:

*** stack smashing detected ***: ldapadd terminated

I guess the process fails because not all data are imported, I did some research but can't seem to find

a real solution to that. I was hoping that someone could shed some light on that problem or maybe

solution if that happened to someone in the past?
I'm using CentOS 6.3 - 2.6.32-279.5.1.el6.i686 with OpenDS-2.2.1 for ldap.

I'd head to the CentOS forums.

I see them under the support link at

Be sure to tell them the command that created that backup.

Yes, I did post a question on that forum too but thought that maybe someone here had similar problem.

I don't use such for backup and restore.

So I have no reason to encounter this one. But are you saying that even paid support fails on this one?
