dn2id.dbb is the database file that maps DN's onto the internal ID of an entry.
If this file cannot be found it suggests that there is a problem with the
underlying database.

If you run slapd with a "-d 1" and look for the ldbm_cache_open lines, you
should see the full path that the slapd is trying to open.

Check your "directory" line in your slapd.conf - it should point to the
filesystem location for the various database files. If this directory exists
and contains files, check the permissions and ownerships to make sure the slapd
can read them.

If the directory doesn't exist or is empty you need to use ldif2ldbm to turn
your LDIF into the necessary database files.
