I guess the original poster asked for retrieving the time of the LDAP server via cn=monitor or similar. Sometimes this is handy for data sync processes eliminating the time shift.

most times you are served much better by eliminating time differences between two and more systems using NTP instead of hacking around the differences.

Most times, yes.

But when implementing continous data synchronization you better use the server's time you're actually syncing with. Note that in this case you're *not* interested in the exact time itself rather than time-stamps => one component less you must rely on.

Ciao, Michael.
