Apparently, the default config file has both BDB & MDB checked. I would
therefore assume I have MDB compiled in. Do I now have to run "slapd-mdb"
after the system starts to get it up and running? I already have the
following in the rc.conf file:

slapd_flags='-h "ldapi://%2fvar%2frun%2fopenldap%2fldapi/ ldap://"'

Also, I am assuming that you replaced: "database bdb" with "database mdb" in
the slapd.conf file. Did you need to make any other modifications?
