Quanah, if we are talking about changing the base DN referenced by 'suffix' in
a database section of slapd.conf I have some doubts that a simple ModRDN
request will work:

- the old or the new database suffix is not already there and data across
database cannot be moved

- DN references within the data will have to be updated ( e.g.

- And also changing the config is needed whereever the base DN is referenced
(ACLs etc.)
