I renamed /usr/local/openldap/etc/openldap/slapd.conf to /usr/local/openldap/etc/openldap/slapd.conf.example, since I am using cn=config.

I ran the following slapadd command:
# slapadd -F /usr/local/etc/openldap/slapd.d -n 0 -l /tmp/ldif
slapadd: line 1: database #0 (cn=config) not configured to hold "dc=myplace,dc=local"; no database configured for that naming context
_                       0.88% eta   none elapsed            none spd   1.4 M/s 
Closing DB...

It appears somewhere in my cn=config directory structure there is an entry "dc=myplace,dc=local" that should reflect my company.  I searched for this entry in my /usr/local/etc/openldap/slapd.d directory structure, however is not in any of those files.  How can I change this?
