You are likely using a search base which the server doesn't hold.
Use ldapsearch(1):
	ldapsearch -R -b "your-suffix" "(objectclass=*)

(replacing your-suffix with the suffix you configured slapd with).

Likely same problem as above.  If your search base is not held
by the server and the server is configured to return a default
referral, a result indicating "partial results" (LDAPv2+ referral)
will be returned by the server.

Again, use ldapsearch (and slapd logs) to sort out what's happening...
