comment Reasons to disable / enable SELinux
Actually there are cases where SELinux can interfere with applications in Permissive mode. One: at some points of time some rules enforced, despite the system being set to be permissive. Not sure if this is still the case. Two: the time taken to process the rules can be enough to screw up IPC. I've seen this with Oracle clusters. Again in the past and not sure what current status is. But remember nearly every system call has a little processing time added to it.

comment While logged in as root whats the stupiest you've done accidently and how did you recover?
It actually happened in the late 90s. There's two relevant implications: 1) A lot has happened since then, such as a complete re-implementation of the unix startup, e.g. upstart - are you running init on your system? 2) I may not have all the detail in the above post. I'll cheerfully concede there may have been another option such as a SIGKILL.

comment Change DN in OpenLDAP “on the fly”
Sun used to have a LDAP Proxy product as part of the Sun ONE Directory suite. I believe Oracle still has it as a product - they did about a year ago. It had provision for modifying some data on the fly. I can't recall if it was just field names or if it was actual data as well. That maybe useful, but there'd probably be a license to use operationally (we had a site license so I just grabbed what I wanted).

comment Error while setting up ldap replication
Just a guess are you sure this "syncdata=accesslog" reference to accesslog is not the problem?

comment Will reverse DNS lookup impact firewall performance
You'll also be beholden to DNS servers. Which can suck. You may end up in a scenario, where the firewall breaks because it cant get to the relevant DNS server. Which depending on your set up, you may not control. Have fun.
