I assume you want to limit the number of connections
a particular authentication identity (or, maybe,
authorization identity) may have open to a particular
server.  At present, no such mechanism exists.

domain, server, and bindpw are not valid OpenLDAP
ldap.conf(5) directives.  See ldap.conf(5) for details.

Anyways, OpenLDAP ldap.conf(5) provides defaults for
the LDAP client library.  As it seems to me that you are
looking for some server-side administrative control, I
do not see how this file could be relevant.

Given the above, that's not surprising.

Seems like you seek information about a particular
directory application/client.  If so, you should
do so on a list about that application/client.

Regarding server limits, see above note.
