Some interesting thoughts
I've been having a discussion in #ldap with a Netscape user, and they have
a few things in Netscape features that make them prefer it over OpenLDAP.
1) Database backups as part of a scheduled job. It creates a backup of the
*.bdb files in a dated directory in the specified location. Given the
changes today to HEAD to allow architecture & release independence of DB
creation, this should be a snap, now that we have a job scheduler.
2) Replica initialization/re-initialization from the master - If you create
an attribute "ndsReplicaRefresh" with a hostname as the value in the job
class, it will reload that replica's DB, by sending binary indexes over the
wire, and then removes the attributes from the job scheduler. I can only
see this working if the master & replica agree on their indexing, however.
It also doesn't replicate the replica specific configuration options.
