Hi Quanah,
I tried doing slapd -VV but had this error:-
"[root@openldap root]# slapd -VV
slapd: invalid option -- V

        -d level        Debug Level

doesn't seem to work.

We originally went for bdb but encountered problems hence we switched to
using ldbm. I can't recall what it was, don't have the log anymore.
Presuming the openldap version is correct. What should I do next ?

The version number you gave is bogus. Given that -V isn't supported, I'm even more inclined to believe OpenLDAP 2.0.2x which is what RedHat ships with everything prior to RH ES4. Which means you are running on an OpenLDAP release that is not supported, is horribly ancient, and has a very unreliable backend (ldbm). BDB may be a little more work to set up initially, but what you get is a stability that simply doesn't exist in LDBM. If you want to stick with 2.0, that is your decision, but I have no interest in answering any further questions about it, although others on the list might.
