Re: Eoor indicated "Referral hop limit exceeded" (ITS#291)

You likely have a misconfigured default referral.  Check
your 'referral' configuration directive in slapd.conf and
make sure it doesn't refer to itself.

Then searching with a base of "ou=/usr/tmp,o=Yano Electric"
against a server configured for "dc=yano-el,dc=co.jp" or
"o=Yano Electric, c=JP" will return NoSuchObject.

Also, looks like you also need to get your servers and
clients on the same DN suffix....

Also, use ldapadd(1), not ldif2ldbm(8), to add new entries.
ldapadd(1) will do naming and schema (if enabled) checks.
