In the OpenLDAP developer community, "bulk loading" implies use
of slapadd(1).  slapadd(1) is not intended to used with the
server is running, or more precisely, slapadd(1) assumes
and requires exclusive access to the underlying DB.

If you want to load a bulk of entries while the server is
running, you must use an LDAP client such as ldapadd(1).
While ldapadd(1) expects input to be LDIF, there certainly
are clients which expect input in other formats.
