I have started the slapd with the following command in both cases. As you may notice, have not provided explicit option of “-F’” or “-f”. Perhaps, a compile time configuration influencing the noticed behavior?

/opt/openldap/lib/slapd -u service -h "ldap:// ldaps://"

Will try with “-F” option.

Hello All,

Noticing a difference in behavior of locating config file at the time of
startup between 2.4.48 and 2.4.58.

6077b37d could not stat config file "/etc/ldap/slapd.d/slapd.conf": No
such file or directory (2)

I clearly notice that existing configuration file(s) are not considered
with 2.4.58. Wondering what is the difference and how can I use the
existing configuration files.

You failed to provide the -F option.  It also looks like you provided an invalid -f option (which shouldn't be used at all if using cn=config).
