We run an OpenLDAP installation on OpenBSD that is fully synchronized on
two servers (one master, one slave) for the public schools here.
~15'000 accounts and all important systems (email, fileserver, even the
~80 firewalls, login, etc.) pull their data from it.
It is in operation for several years now, not a single problem with it.
I can say nothing about HP-UX, but OpenBSD surely is a stable foundation
for an OpenLDAP server.
