I run 2.1.3 and only started attacking Openldap seriously with this
release. Although there's a standard /usr/local/etc/openldap/ldap.conf,
I soon discovered that slapd, at least, uses /etc/ldap.conf - which is
where I store my configs (haven't got as far as replication, yet). To
keep everything happy. I've just made a symlink from /etc/ldap.conf to
As far as I'm concerned, without /etc/ldap.conf, none of the "virtual
user" stuff works, and it's pretty picky, too.
