Sorry about that.

Thanks for your help.  I can't seem to be able to start the server with
the -d flag.  Here is what I tried:

 su root -c /usr/local/libexec/slapd -d 65535

I also tried:

 su root -d 65535 -c /usr/local/libexec/slapd

And it complains in both cases that -d is an invalid option.

Using -d works for me. Which version of OpenLDAP is this?

Can you post any output it produces?

I am using openldap-2.3.39 on Ubuntu.

Here is the output:

 su root -d 65535 -c /usr/local/libexec/slapd
su: invalid option -- d
Usage: su [options] [LOGIN]

  -c, --command COMMAND         pass COMMAND to the invoked shell
  -h, --help                    display this help message and exit
  -, -l, --login                make the shell a login shell
  -m, -p,
  --preserve-environment        do not reset environment variables, and
keep                                 the same shell
  -s, --shell SHELL             use SHELL instead of the default in passwd
