I changed the line according to your propose. The log on the slave says :
line 64 (database^Ildbm)
line 65 (suffix^I^I"dc=test")
line 66 (rootdn^I^I"cn=LdapAdmin,ou=WIN,ou=wag,dc=test")
line 70 (rootpw      {SHA}secret)
line 71 (updatedn "cn=LdapAdmin,ou=WIN,ou=wag,dc=test")
line 72 (updateref   "ldap://wvi161:389";)
line 77 (directory^I/var/ldap/test)

I can't see an error there. I tried "ldap://wvi161:389/dc=test"; as well, with
the same (=no) result.

The admin guide is VERY short on replication. No (full) example, no hints,
just the most basic info how to run replication. I don't know how to make it
better, but the admin guide is no help here.

Let me cite from the man pages :
"       updateref <url>
              Specify  the referral to pass back when slapd(8) is
              asked to modify a replicated  local  database.   If
              specified multiple times, each url is provided."

This leads me to another question: how does the slave know, that a local
database is replicated ? As far as I learned from the admin guide, the only
lines I have to add to the slaves slapd.conf are

updatedn  "cn=LdapAdmin,ou=WIN,ou=wag,dc=test"
updateref "ldap://wvi161:389";

Is this enough ?

I did not check out the mail-archive for "replication,referral", neither the
rfc's but I will do so now.

Thanks for your hints !
