I'm running slapd version 1.2.11 on AIX 4.3.2 with a lot of success.  I
restart the server everyday though because I destroy and recreate the
database from other data sources.  I've had no problems with reliability,
and slapd only allocates about 10MB of memory, however our database is
small (only 25,000 entries).
