I have spent the last week off and on trying to figure out why my chain
overlay was not working correctly. I tried all combinations of it that
I could find and finally found out that the parser of the slapd.conf
file is picky about spacing. I was trying to make my config file look
nice by indenting the options under "overlay chain" only to find after
many frustrating hours that you cannot do that! I didn't find anywhere
that that was explicitly documented (even though all of the examples
were not formatted that way). I finally caught it when I upgraded to
2.4.7 wondering if there was a bug and slaptest gave a very unhelpful
error, but it did help me narrow it down. Hopefully this will save
someone my same frustrations.
