The Admin Guide on the OpenLDAP website has a lot of information about 
the new cn=config backend and how to set it up.

On the mailing list it was recommended by several subscribers to upgrade 
to the latest openldap release (2.4.33) due to the many fixes in the 
dynamic config backend and the logic that can transform an slapd.conf 
into a cn=config version. With a few changes (replace systemd stuff with 
the original CentOS openldap init scripts) the F17 openldap SRPM should 
build ok on CentOS 6.3.
