That's better than nothing...

OpenLDAP software knows nothing about that; it is the ODBC library that
knows where to look for, e.g. in the defautl place it was compiled for, or
wherever the ODBCINI environment variable tells it to look.  slapd-sql(5)
should tell you what to put in ODBC related values for the database name
(i.e. the DSN), the user and the credentials; I'm not quite sure if the
latter are required in case they're already provided in the odbc.ini file.
