Eh, no such thing as OpenLDAP v2.16. I'd bet it is OpenLDAP 2.0.2x.

slapd -VV should show the version.

In slapd.conf: database = ldbm
In the slapd.conf...the first line shows : "# $OpenLDAP:

Okay, first, I'd suggest building your own OpenLDAP version, and storing it separately from the system's ancient, deprecated, and unsupported version of OpenLDAP. Perhaps /usr/local or /opt. And then, I suggest switching to bdb as your database, not ldbm, which is not a very robust or reliable database format. You'll need to compile numerous software pieces to do all this of course. Or, optionally, you can purchase prebuilt distributions from a company like Symas (http://www.symas.com) if you don't feel like doing it yourself.
