Re: Partial replication of attributes

As suggested off-list by mdenk@whidbey.net:

"What I had to do in order to get selective replication to work was to
restrict the replication of certain attributes using the "!attr = attr1,
attr2, attr3 . . ." directive.  That works well for me."

Indeed it works better, but I'd like to remove posixAccount objectclass
and attributes on that replication, and now I get the following error
while the replicate tries to add a new entry:

object class 'posixAccount' requires attribute 'uidNumber'

although I put in my slapd.conf for that replica:
replica         host=ldaptux1.int-evry.fr:9000

I don't recall seeing the "objectclass!=<ocname>" option
in replica partial replication; if you use the name of an
objectclass instead of an attribute type, then all the
attrs of that objectclass get automatically selected;
quoting a comment in servers/slapd/ad.c:

 * Convert a delimited string into a list of AttributeNames;
 * add on to an existing list if it was given.  If the string
 * is not a valid attribute name, if a '-' is prepended it is
 * skipped and the remaining name is tried again; if a '+' is
 * prepended, an objectclass name is searched instead.
 * NOTE: currently, if a valid attribute name is not found,
 * the same string is also checked as valid objectclass name;
 * however, this behavior is deprecated.
AttributeName *

I'm not sure whether this will cause all the atrs listed as
required/allowed for that objectclass will be processed


Ok, I anticipated (invented) the objectclass!=something ...

so now I have:

replica host=ldaptux1.int-evry.fr:9000
attr!=posixAccount loginShell homeDirectory uidNumbergidNumber gecos

And I get "No objectClass for entry..." ?:
