At present, it seems that if you want to do the conversion while slapd is running, and for a slapd that runs as non-root, something like this is the best option:
# slapd -u ldap -g ldap -d none -h ldap://localhost:391/ -f /etc/openldap/slapd.conf -F /etc/openldap/slapd.d
As then -The configuration will be converted -slapd won't start up
What makes you say that?
It will fail to open the database already opened by the running slapd.
You're assuming a back-bdb/hdb database. Not everyone uses them. There are quite a large number of installations using just back-ldap/meta etc... The slaptest invocation will always work.
