Bug Description

Not sure if this is an openldap bug... BUT

I decided to upgrade to jaunty - this also includes and openldap upgrade. When openldap is upgraded, it is first stopped, then some other packages are installed and later it is restarted.

If you have the user information stored in ldap this is quite annoying. This means that every user lookup first has to timeout before /etc/passwd and friends are consulted.

Would it be possible to handle ldap (and maybe kerberos) in a special way during an upgrade? So that the down-time of each service is minimized?

I can see this as a potential problem. While I'm not sure if it qualifies as a bug I at least think it might be added as a Wishlist. Might also be relevant regarding some database servers.

Not a server papercuts. There are some use cases when slapd needs to be stopped in order to correctly upgrade the backend database.
