The LDAP database files are *very* sensitive to unclean shut downs.  I'd 
keep multi-master redundant servers on separate power supplies if 
possible.  Or at least a decent clean shut down off UPS power.

It may be simplest to recover the databases from backup using the import 
scripts than attempt to recover an existing corrupted database.  There 
is a section in the manual (can't find the link right away) that states 
if the servers go down hard then the databases "will" be corrupted and 
to restore from backup.

Good luck,

Peter Brady
