For some reason, I had duplicate schema files in the
slapd.d/cn=config/cn=schema directory.  Removing the duplicate files
(with different {x} numbers) solved this problem.

I then got slapd to run with olc.  However, none of my TLS settings
transferred to the olc config.  Do you know how to add these?

Are there any docs you can point me to on this?  The ones I've found
via google have not helped me handle any of these exceptions.

I'm contemplating this but I really dont want to go through this
again.  I've already spent so much time fighting slapd config, I'd
like to get it over with.  Yuck this transition sucks.

Thanks for your help.
