Your question is not 100% clear; my understanding is that you already
have a database that uses back-sql to present an existing RDBMS's data
thru OpenLDAP's slapd, and now you want that database to appear as
subordinate to a database that's stored locally in that instance of

I suggest you look at the "subordinate" directive in slapd.conf(5);
something like this should work:

database sql
suffix "ou=sql,dc=test,dc=loc"

database bdb
suffix "dc=test,dc=loc"

(omitting non-relevant configuration).  Hope this helps.
