This is not a good backend to begin with; you need an SQL
database up and running, and the possibility to access it
via odbc (e.g. libodbc with appropriate drivers).
You may want to man slapd-sql(5), and carefully read the
metainformation paragraph, possibly with the help of the
example files provided in servers/slapd/back-sql/rdbms_depend/*
Keep in mind you'll have to design your metainformation
tables very carefully to have something usable. In fact
this IS NOT A REPLACEMENT for any LDAP specific backend
(e.g. bdb or ldbm), but a menas to publish/access existing
SQL data via LDAP.
