I recently upgraded to debian squeeze and found that the slapd configuration

shouldn't. I just want to know if there is a simple way of reconfiguring under the new regime so that it will work the same way it did before.Â

Any Takers?

You can continue to use use a files based configuration as the basis for
your LDAP server and convert the files based configuration to cn=config
using slaptest.  The command line to do the conversion is:

 % slaptest -f /etc/ldap/slapd.conf -F /etc/ldap/slapd.d

This a reasonable way to step halfway into the new world while you figure
things out.
