OpenLDAP 2.0.27 is a very ancient OpenLDAP release. RedHat has done a continual disservice to the OpenLDAP community by bundling OpenLDAP 2.0 on it servers long past its time. RH AS 4.0 at least has OpenLDAP 2.2 on it. Since you are just starting out on your OpenLDAP journey, I highly suggest that you build and install your own local version of OpenLDAP and its dependant libraries, so that you do not face the issues of trying to upgrade an OpenLDAP 2.0 based directory server to the much more advanced OpenLDAP 2.2 based directory server.
