chain-overlay question

Hi list!

i have several consumer and one provider (lets call them ldapconX and ldapprov). syncrepl works fine, but i actually do not want any clients to contact the provider directly (and i have in addition some clients which would not understand referrals anyway), so reading through the admin guide and man pages i thought slapo-chain would be the solution! (correct me if i am wrong ;-))
But somehow a can not get it working...

the slapd.conf of the provider is untouched, the consumer have (simplified in some places; please tell me if you need it in more details):

----- /etc/openldap/slapd.conf
# consumer
include ...
acls ...
databse bdb
suffix ...
rootdn "cn=manager,o=test"
rootpw xxx
index ...
overlay smbk5pwd
syncrepl ...
updateref ldaps://ldapprov
overlay chain
chain-rebind-as-user    FALSE
chain-uri       "ldaps://ldapprov"
chain-rebind-as-user    TRUE
chain-idassert-bind     bindmethod="simple"
---- end of slapd.conf

but when trying to change the password via ldappasswd i get:

  ldappasswd -x -h localhost <...>
   New password:
   Re-enter new password:
   Enter LDAP Password:
   Result: Referral (10)
   Referral: ldaps://ldapprov

i also tried to remove the line "updateref ...", but then i get:
  Result: Server is unwilling to perform (53)
  Additional info: shadow context; no update referral

i also read different postings and the man pages but maybe overlooked or did not understand something.

what am i am doing wrong? or do i missunderstand some conceptual basics?

thanks in advance for any hints!
