    Hello Everyone,

    I am fairly new to Linux and I have run into a bit of a problem. I
    successfully configured openldap and slapd on a redhat 7.2 box. I was
    able to add/delete/change/search the ldap database just fine.
    Yesterday when I was attempting to add another user using the same
    ldapadd command I used successfully in the past, it never completed
    the operation. I had to ctrl-z in order to get back to a prompt.

    When this happened, the slapd proccess died. Since then I have been
    unable to get slapd to run successfully. The slapd service starts but
    I am unable to search the ldap database. The error I get is "can't
    connect to ldap server (81)". When I run "top" the slapd proccess is
    using 98%-99% of the CPU.

    I can kill (9) the slapd proccess but restarting it doesn't help. The
    status of the slapd process is "running". I noticed some zombies when
    I was trying to get it to work, but they have since disappeared.

    I hope I provided enough information.
