I have spent the last week off and on trying to figure out why my
overlay was not working correctly. I tried all combinations of it that I
could find and finally found out that the parser of the slapd.conf file
is picky about spacing. I was trying to make my config file look nice by
indenting the options under "overlay chain" only to find after many
frustrating hours that you cannot do that! I didn't find anywhere that
that was explicitly documented (even though all of the examples were not
formatted that way).
Apparently you haven't read the slapd.conf(5) manpage:
If a line begins with white space, it is considered a continuation of
the previous line. No physical line should be over 2000 bytes long.
