Hi Alexander,

for SLES you can always fork and build your own OpenLDAP packages 
matching your SLES version with OBS (OpenBuildService) like I did here:


This way you can spread out the time you need to migrate to a setup 
without OpenLDAP. You could even use my repo with "zypper addrepo -r", 
but be aware that mine will go away as soon as I have migrated my 
remaining 3 usages to 389ds.
