Turn readonly off (this is the default anyway) and define a updatedn. The
replica will accept change requests only from that dn and return a referral
to updateref <url> for write attempts from anyone else. see the documentation
for slapd.conf for details.
btw. I'm talkung about OpenLDAP 2.0.x, I don't know how OpenLDAP 1.x behaves
in this context.
