This question may fit - I just tried create a database with slapadd and a 2.1 GB ldif file and all I get is a message saying:
Filename: File to large

This was with 2.2.5 - I'm going to grab the latest openldap now, and try again, in hopes that I don't have to split this file.

So, what exactly is too large?

Depends! It sounds to me like you're getting error 27, EFBIG, from a system call like open(), because the LDIF file is a hair over the size supported by old style filesystems. Right around 2.1 Gb you get into a special case of "too large" that has to do with the number of bits needed to represent a positive integer.

If that's it, you need to find out, for your platform, how to
avoid building this legacy file stuff into slapadd et al., and
instead built with `large file support' or whatever they may
call it.

This is purely speculation and surmise, but I didn't notice
any other followup (possibly a problem with the list - I don't
even see your message in the archives at this point.)
