You see a rootpw with password hashed in slapd.conf, like Quanah said in another email. The slappaswd syntax:
  slappasswd -h HASH{MD5 or CRYPT, for example} -s password.
 For example:
  slappasswd -h {MD5} -s password

Actually sending the error message would be useful.  If there is no
password in slapd.conf, how can it be in slapd.conf, and hashed?  I assume
you mean there's a rootpw line in slapd.conf that is hashed.  Simply run
slappasswd to generate the hash of a password you know, and update
slapd.conf.  Given the limited information you've supplied, that's the best
shot in the dark I can make.
