I'm afraid there might be a misunderstanding.
"hard" limits means that they are activated
by explicitly requesting a size limit from the
client's side; otherwise the "soft" limits are
used.  Soft limits default to the default size
limit of the server (usually 500 in OpenLDAP's
slapd).  Do you get the desired unlimited
number of entries if you explicitly request a
very high limit with -z?
