Is it possible you could share with me a skeleton of your
configuration? I am on RHEL5, slapd 2.3.43, hence I'm still working
with slapd.conf.  (Learning the 2.4 dynamic configuration style is on
my to do list...I think I will want the memberof attribute overlay)

I implemented desired functionality minus translucency by having the
following database clauses -- (I can create entities within the
ou=groups and searches against the ou=Users are results from remote

database        bdb
suffix "dc=dept,dc=example,dc=org"

database meta
suffix  "dc=example,dc=org"

uri     "ldap://remoteldap.example.org/ou=people,dc=example,dc=org";
uri     "ldap://localhost/ou=groups,dc=dept,dc=example,dc=";
