RE: Replication between different OS

I did both;  I have a feeling theyre using different db libraries, so the
file copy wont work.  When I did the LDIF export, I didn't stop the master
LDAP server first, so that's probably why it wasn't replicating.  I plan to
try that today.  When I imported the LDIF file, the database worked but the
replication didn't work (no updates were applied).

have you done a slapcat on your linux machine(s) and integrated the db
with slapadd on your FreeBSD? or have you just copied the database files?
