I found a helpful page:
http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialLDAP.html  approximately 
2/3 down the page, section titled 'Notes: LDAP on Red Hat/Fedora 
distribution:'  An example database recovery command as follows:

/usr/sbin/slapd_db_recover -v -h /var/lib/ldap/stooges/

I have run this (twice now with ldap stopped) on all three servers and 
continue to have problems.  Now I'm really lost as to what to do.
