AW: slave doesn't update master ?

that's the part of your "updateref" entry in slave slapd.conf.
i wonder, the changes are executed on your slave server. check debug logging
of slapd on the slave during startup. (the part where slapd reads
slapd.conf) maybe the updateref is ignored because of an syntax error.
(should be smth. like ldap://qualified.host.name:port)
check the admin guide, the manpages, the mail-archive and maybe even some
rfc's on this topic. (search for replication, referral)


cut&paste from your initial message:
The slave side config contains:

database	ldbm
suffix		"dc=test"
rootdn		"cn=LdapAdmin,ou=WIN,ou=wag,dc=test"
rootpw          {SHA}secret
updatedn  "cn=LdapAdmin,ou=WIN,ou=wag,dc=test"
updateref "wvi161:389"
