I noticed the that I am getting a number of bdb logs (log.0000000000 ..

these with openldap while keeping the server process running. We have
version 2.3.27, but plan on upgrading to 2.3.33.

See the options for DB_CONFIG. In particular:


The second question: is the best way to migrate from one ldap version to
another to slapcat from the old one and the slapadd to the new one? I
realize if I do this way, I would in essence have an answer for the first
question, but the first one I was wondering from a live point of view.

There's no reason to slapcat/slapadd between minor patch levels (2.3.27->2.3.33). All OpenLDAP releases so far have required slapcat/slapadd between major revisions (2.2->2.3, etc). Same thing if you change versions of BDB (4.2 -> 4.4 for example).
