while migrating servers form 2.3.x to 2.4.x I stumbled upon this with

When I try online config based on my slapd.conf file, I get an error

# slaptest -f /etc/openldap/slapd.conf -F /etc/openldap/slapd.d -u
config file testing succeeded

fine so far.

# slaptest -f /etc/openldap/slapd.conf -F /etc/openldap/slapd.d

There is no URI or any meta specific attribute here.

Of course not, because it is not supported. Does your question indicate that the above warning messages are not clear enough? How can we make them clearer?

from slapd.conf:

database        meta
suffix          "ou=AllgV,ou=foo"
uri             "ldap://server/ou=AllgV,ou=foo";
suffixmassage   "ou=AllgV,ou=foo" "ou=allgv,ou=proxy,o=bar"
conn-ttl 30
idle-timeout 1m30s

Is there something wrong with my config or does meta not work with olc?

According to the mail from p.
it seems to be "not me".
Whereas Howard replied: "All of the core overlays now support

Exactly so. meta is a backend, not an overlay, and I specifcally said overlays.
