Hi Dieter,
  Thanks for your response.  I eventually discovered that I needed a parent object for my phonebook entries.  We had the exact same configuration and data setup working on a much older version of openldap.  Version 2.3.43 gave "No such object" until I created a parent container object!

I discovered this by moving the dataset into the ldbm backend, which gave me the same "No such object" error, with an additional message complaining that there was no parent.  I added the parent container and it started working.
