adding monitor to cn=config on already running slapd

The openldap guide suggests that the configuration for dynamic configuration is yet to be written and it seems it is probably easy to get configured from the start but not intuitive enough for me to add to an already running server.

(this is my consumer if that makes a difference)

# cat monitor-add.ldif
# Load dynamic backend modules
dn: cn=module,cn=config
changetype: add
add: module
olcModuleload: back_monitor

# http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/monitoringslapd.html
dn: olcDatabase=monitor,cn=config
#objectClass: olcDatabaseConfig
changetype: add
add: olcDatabase
olcDatabase: {2}monitor

# ./monitor-add.sh 
Enter LDAP Password: 
adding new entry "cn=module,cn=config"
ldapmodify: update failed: cn=module,cn=config
ldap_add: Bad parameter to an ldap routine (-9)

I can't seem to find the right ldif combination to add monitor
(Ubuntu Lucid / slapd 2.4.21-0ubuntu5.5)

# grep ModulePath /etc/ldap/slapd.d/cn\=config/cn\=module\{0\}.ldif 
olcModulePath: /usr/lib/ldap
