Specifiying password-hash {CLEARTEXT} in slapd.conf and/or slapd.d 

slapd.conf: line 19: <password-hash> schema not available ({CLEARTEXT})
slapd.conf: line 19: <password-hash> no valid hashes found

and slapd.d respectively:

olcPasswordHash: value #0: <olcPasswordHash> schema not available ({CLEARTEXT})
olcPasswordHash: value #0: <olcPasswordHash> no valid hashes found
config error processing cn=config: <olcPasswordHash> no valid hashes found
slapd stopped.

leads slapd to abort execution.

In (my) configuration there are no overlays enabled, actually the config is

1) Schema includes
2) Backend module loads (bdb, monitor)
3) args/pidfile
4) Simple ACL
5) bdb and monitor backend definitions
