    Howard, in my first post, I really just copy my slapd.conf from 2.3
to 2.4, and I've had that limits rules, in the end of slapd.conf. And
that did'nt work for me. I just told what happened, I'm sorry if I
did'nt give enough details of my configuration.

    May be slapd.conf.default would have samples of limits and
sizelimit, including when somebody uses replication. I've wanted to post
to the list how I've fixed my issues just to help future ldap
administrators whith the same problem, with isn't uncommon.

    Thank you, anyway.
