I had a similar situation here a few years ago. The only viable solution
for me was to setup a new vm, compile openldap from source myself,
export data from the old ldap as plain ldif and import it into the new
one. Then test around get to know what I want, configure it and then
slowly migrate everything from the old to the new server.
I guess you won't get around that process either. Otherwise you will
have to rely on outdated OpenLDAP versions with all the bugs that this
I suggest starting with a new vm, compiled openLDAP and the old server
slapd.conf file and try to setup your future to be server from there.
exactly. In the age of virtualization and cheap vms it is very hard to
understand this kind of resistance.
There is a point at which you just cannot support an ancient installation
anymore. This applies not only to openldap but also to any old linux
distro or to whatever it system.
The later you update the more pain you experience.
