Ok, I think I’m on the path, but still have not reached my destination.

I already have OpenLDAP up and running, but I need to add the memberOf overlay.  From what I’ve read, the slapd.conf is being depricated.  When I did my install, I never used the slapd.conf file and configured all the options LDIF ldapadds (sudo ldapadd -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f base.ldif). 


Well, maybe it is depreciated, but I won't touch it again by the time it is properly documented in the guide.
It's not funny guessing the LDIFF structure to do something that was doable in slapd.conf within minutes.

Would I create a LDIF file with the memberOf configs, and if so, what would that file look like,

Or, should I use the slapd.conf and do a “moduleload    memberof.la” as a global setting?  If I do this, will I overwrite any of my other changes that are not in this file (which may have been configured from the LDIFs)

I have went back to file-based config. If you do so, configuring memberof is as simple as reading the guide.
(which again, should have proper examples for db-based config if somebody is depreceating it already :) )
