How do I configure OpenLDAP logging in IMail server?

You can set the logging level in the file: \IMail\OpenLDAP\Bin\slapd.conf

Find this section:

# Logging Info 

loglevel 296 

local4.debug slapd.log

The OpenLDAP logging level is set using the following command:

loglevel number

The possible values for number are:

loglevelLogging description

-1enable all debugging

0no debugging

1trace function calls

2debug packet handling

4heavy trace debugging

8connection management

16print out packets sent and received

32search filter processing

64configuration file processing

128access control list processing

256stats log connections/operations/results

512stats log entries sent

1024print communication with shell backends

2048print entry parsing debugging

The loglevel directive uses a decimal bit value so to set more than one logging level you need to add the decimal numbers as in the following examples:

loglevel 255 or loglevel -1

# sets 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 and 128

loglevel 2176

# 2048 + 128

loglevel 296 

# 256 + 32 + 8

Stop and restart the LDAP service after a change.

Save a copy of slapd.conf before you make changes. Changes to slapd.conf are not supported by Ipswitch.
