Not specifically a manual, but if you disassemble the Debian package for OpenLDAP you will see how you bootstrap a cn=config setup from a few binaries and an ldif file (and then you should use the latest version from the OpenLDAP project).

Conceptually everything you see in slapd.conf has a corresponding attribute in cn=config which you set via your ldap client. See this url:


These sections are the same config in slapd.conf and cn=config formats, showing how they map: Example for slapd.conf Example for slapd-config
