Had to move 389-ds from a docker container running under a CentOS 7 to docker container running under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. An exotic message appeared once I tried to run the dirsrv from within the new container:
/usr/sbin/ns-slapd: undefined symbol: slapi_attr_is_last_mod
Apparently, the user that last used the dirsrv left some inconsistencies (though I used “-rltzuv” for rsync).
The thing that helped was to erase and re-install. Have you tried to turn it off and on again?
