Re: entryCSN and ldapsearch result
In OpenLDAP 2.2 beta, slapd maintains contextCSN (back-bdb / back-hdb),
but it has a different meaning than what you might look for.
It is the largest entryCSN with all transactions having earlier entryCSNs
have already been committed, or in other words, no transaction is
outstanding with an entryCSN value earlier than the contextCSN.
It can be searched by requesting the contextCSN attribute
of "cn=ldapsync,<database suffix>" with the base scope.
