    I have just been doing this myself.
    Only the master needs to have slurpd running. All LDAP servers must
have slapd.
    The key part for the client software is to have "chase referrals"
enabled. When a change is sent to a slave, it returns a referral to the
client who then submits the change to the referral, the master in this
case since it is replication.
