Thanks for your help

There is zero need to recreate everything. Dieter is wrong. Simply
stop slapd, create the DB_CONFIG file, run db_recover to regenerate
the bdb database profile, then start slapd. This has been the standard
way to do this since OpenLDAP 2.1. Dieter should know this.

I have experienced some problems in the past, that's why I prefer a
clean recreation.

Then you should have collected data and filed an ITS. I've never had a problem in nearly 10 years of configuring and modifying DB_CONFIG files back to 2.1.4 when it's done correctly.
