After updating to Mac OS X Server 10.5.3, you may need to re-index the LDAP database on the server. Use the following Terminal commands to update the index so that the correct search results are returned.

sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.openldap.slapd.plist
sudo slapindex -v -c
sudo launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.openldap.slapd.plist

: the slapindex command may take several minutes to complete. The larger the database, to longer it will take. Users will not be able to authenticate while this process is running. You should not interrupt the slapindex process.
