While applying today's updates on a machine running a slapd server, the
following error occurred:

Stopping slapd: [  OK  ]
Checking configuration files for slapd: [FAILED]
bdb(dc=linuxdev,dc=datasphere,dc=ch): Build signature doesn't match
bdb_db_open: database "dc=linuxdev,dc=datasphere,dc=ch" cannot be
opened, err -30971. Restore from backup!
backend_startup_one (type=bdb,
suffix="dc=linuxdev,dc=datasphere,dc=ch"): bi_db_open failed! (-30971)
slap_startup failed (test would succeed using the -u switch)
stale lock files may be present in /var/lib/ldap[WARNING]
/var/lib/ldap /

as a result, the ldap server is not running anymore, I cannot start it
manually and I have no recent backup.

I cannot even use slapcat (after update) on the current data.

This is quite urgent since ldap data are heavily used by our
Please help !
