If you have an existing slapd.conf you can simply let slapd convert it to a

That's the -F flag, but how does it works? I made little attemps,
without much success.

As I understand, schema replication won't work with syncrepl on 2.3.x,

There's a new man page in 2.4 (slapd-config), but basically:

"Alternatively, an existing slapd.conf file can be converted to the new
format using slapd or any of the slap tools:
slaptest -f /usr/local/etc/openldap/slapd.conf -F ETCDIR/slapd."

Note that this feature was already documented in the existing slapd/slapadd/slap* manpages in 2.3. It's a shame that we go to the trouble of writing these docs that nobody actually reads.

We should just write mindless howtos like the everyone else out there. Then all we need is some whytos ;-)
