|OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : OpenLDAP Software FAQ : Configuration : SLAPD Configuration : Can SLAPD hold multiple naming contexts?|
SLAPD can be configured to support multiple databases and each database can support multiple suffixes. The multiple databases each with a single suffix approach is preferred over the single database with multiple suffix approach.

Currently, back-bdb supports only one naming context. Multiple naming contexts within a single database can be enabled by defining BDB_MULTIPLE_SUFFIXES at compile time, resulting in an appreciable performance penalty.
Owing to the current design of slapd, i.e. the possibility to glue together different databases to behave as a single one, this is no longer seen as a limitation; see the subordinate directive in slapd.conf(5).
