As the subject say, I'm contemplating the use of LetsEncrypt TLS certificates.
Is there a way to make slapd aware of a cert renewal (they happen every 90
days) without restarting it, ie, with minimal service interruption?

I *do* restart slapd after I installed the new Let's Encrypt

Use ldapmodify to set the new cert in cn=config. No restarts needed.

This requires to use new file names for cert and key files, doesn't it?
