Eh, I'm not sure it should be in the man page. The point is, if you ever
want guaranteed atomic writes, you have to use slapo-accesslog to serialize
them. That's an issue that affects other LDAP servers as well.
AS Pierangelo said:
There is no guarantee of DSA-wide or even database-wide atomicity in write
operations, including internal ones. This was never even intended to be in
place. This is a known design limitation not only of slapo-unique, but
also of slapd (and, I'd say, of LDAP itself).
