ok, here is my confusion..
What's the difference between the following:

olcDbCacheSize:1000 in my hdb.ldif file
olcDbConfg: set_cachesize 0 10485760 0

I added the olcDbConfig and <presto> DB_CONFIG file gets created.
So many thanks for the assistance, just curious as to the differences..

The directives you indicate configure the bdb/hdb backend, and do not
generate a DB_CONFIG.

The only directive that changes the DB_CONFIG is the "dbconfig" directive.
Try olcDbConfig in your back-config.

Note that "if these are specified and DB_CONFIG file exists" is exactly
opposite -- the file must NOT exist at the time of slapd startup.
