The slapd-config man page content on the olcServerID parameter is a bit
confusing :

   'Specify an integer ID from 0 to 4095 for this server (limited to
   3  hexadecimal digits).  The ID may also be specified as a hexa‐
   decimal ID by prefixing the value  with  "0x".'...

If it's an integer, like 4095, why is it limited to 3 hexadecimal digits, when 4
digits would be required ? If you have to enter FFF for 4095, then should we add
the 0x prefix ?

All in all, it's hard for me to know if those values are accepted :

  - 4095
  - FFF

also is :

  - 100

considered as 100 (decimal) or 256 (decimal) ?
