We have an older openldap installation (openldap-servers-2.0.27-2.7.3, RH 7.3),
just working fine. For this installation I have written my own schema.

Inside the slapd.conf I have the following entry:

suffix          "cffNetwork=fotofinder.net"

This is the beginning LDIF-dump of the working databse:

dn: cffNetwork=fotofinder.net
description: COM.BOX Fotofinder GmbH / Fotofinder.net
objectClass: cffNetwork
cffNetworkName: fotofinder.net
dn: cffDomain=fotofinder.net, cffNetwork=fotofinder.net
cffDomainName: fotofinder.net
description: COM.BOX Fotofinder GmbH / www.fotofinder.net
objectClass: cffDomain
cffNetworkName: fotofinder.net

dn: cffOwner=cff, cffNetwork=fotofinder.net
cffScreenName: CFF Testimportkonto
cffEditorPrefs:: YmlsbD0sZG93bmxvYWRlbWFpbD0xLHByb3Rva29sbHR5cD14bHMsdHlwZT1z
objectClass: cffOwner
userPassword:: XXX
cffOwnerName: cff
cffImportTextimage: cff.png
uid: cff
uidNumber: 501
cffPassword: XXX
loginShell: /bin/true
cffEMail: technik@fotofinder.net
cffPlainIcon: yes
cffLang: de
cffOwnerID: 44
gidNumber: 501
cffCatTreeName: cff
homeDirectory: /fotofinder/mandanten/cff
cffShopAccess: 44
cffNetworkName: fotofinder.net
cffOwner: cff
cffShopDisplay: 44,102,0
cffLowResImport: yes
cffShopDefault: 44

As I wrote, this works perfectly.

When I try to start the more recent openldap server, I ve got the following
error message:

Mar 10 17:22:04 tron slapd[6233]: line 85 (database ldbm)
Mar 10 17:22:04 tron slapd[6233]: line 87 (suffix "cffNetwork=fotofinder.net")
Mar 10 17:22:04 tron slapd[6233]: >>> dnPrettyNormal:

Mar 10 17:22:04 tron slapd[6233]: connections_destroy: nothing to destroy.

When useful, I will provide the complete schema and configuration files.
