OpenLDAP 1.2.x replication problem
I have a single master and 4 slaves, running OpenLDAP 1.2.12 on a
mixture of Red Hat Linux 6.1, 6.2, and 7.0 systems. The master
runs Red Hat Linux 6.1.
I've had problems with replication for as long as I've had it
set up (more than a year), under various versions of OpenLDAP 1.2.x.
Intermittently, slaves will not get updated. I find .rej files
on the master. Typically, they contain "ERROR: Already exists"
at the beginning of the transaction. If I query that slave for
that directory object, it does NOT exist.
Today I shut down one of my slave directory servers, my notebook.
I added an object to the master directory server. The other 3
slaves were updated successfully, but a .rej file was created
for my notebook, saying "ERROR: Already exists".
Obviously, since the machine wasn't even running, this is a
Can anyone shed some light on this problem? Anyone else
experiencing similar problems? Is OpenLDAP 2.0.x any better at
replication than 1.2.x?
