First, make sure you have all updates applied:

yum upgrade

If you have any dependencies issues, solve those first before you go on to the suggestions below. There was an update to the 6.6 upgrade that contained a patch where LDAP permissions were wrong.

Sometimes it's as simple as stopping slapd a few times and then starting it up.

service slapd stop
service slapd stop
service slapd start

Also, make sure there are no hanging PID's around that relate to LDAP:

ps afxw | grep ldap

If you see any, you can 'kill -9 xxx' where xxx is the PID of the process related to LDAP/SLAPD.

There's also a help page here.

Finally, if nothing is working for you, you could reload from your latest config backup, provided you have one.

Hi Shaun.

Marcel's advice is good....if you have enough clients and the interest, there is the potential for you to host your own remote backup node locally and for your clients use, exclusively.

You provide the infrastructure/hosting and license the back end remote backup from ClearCenter. In this way, all backup/restore operations would never leave SA.

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:ClearOS 6.6.0 Beta Thread in the forums.

I've just looked at the ClearCARE support queue and I'm not seeing any open issues that seem to have been related to the 6.6 roll-out.

Granted, it didn't go perfectly and we're looking at ways in v7 to be able to stagger the updates so we can have the same sort of QC process that is in place and successful in normal updates (eg. goes to Community firs for testingt unless security-related and deemed urgent, in which case it's reversed), however, any Pro users who had problems were handled by the ClearCenter support team (not on Community forums but through the support ticket queue).

If you have any issues related to 6.6 update and are on Professional, please, throw us a ticket, even if you don't have a subscription that includes support. At least it will be logged and reviewed by the devel team, and if we've broken something for the masses, we'll fix it...we're not going to ding you for per-incident costs. That would be...dirty.

We can't fix what we don't know about.
