I fact, it is a named pipe and as that ldapi is addressed as a file,
but the slashes have to be escaped (depending on OpnLDAP version), an
example: ./slapd -h "ldap:/// ldapi:///"
ldapsearch -H ldapi://%2fvar%2frun%2fldapi

According to a note on openldap-devel mailinglist, you may write the
path without escaped slashes.
