partial replication of entries/attributes


Is it possible to do a partial replication, i.e. only certain attributes
are taken into consideration?

For example, imagine that there is a master directory, handling
authentication and mail lookups. The server master gets bogged down by the 
amount of requests, and to balance the load a slave slapd is installed
locally at the mailserver.

However, it would be unneccecary to replicate information such as
address, phone numbers, ... both as it increases the load (maybe marginally,
dont know), and for example passwords are preferably kept only at the

So, is there a way to specify a set of attributes that should be replicated
while others are ignored?
