Submission from: (NULL) (

Goal: set up master/slave ldap servers - the slave will be public white paper
server, so it should not contain posix data.  The master will be for single-sign

Set up a master and slave with identical structure:
   created a 'core.ldif' file which is just the top level stuff
   "slapadd -l core.ldif" on both conf files
   started slapd (both master and slave)
   replica and updatedn lines from conf files below

Loaded the data to the master
   ran "ldapadd -f data.ldif" on the master
   replog file is created

Started slurpd

The "suffix=" line is working as expected - no "Group" data is passed
The "attr!=" line is not working (fully) as expected
   all data EXCEPT posixAccount data is passed to the replog file (as expected)
   posixAccount objectClass not passed to replog file (as expected)
   no objectClass AT ALL is passed to the replog file (not expected)

When slapd starts up: objectClass violations due to no objectClass being
