| Typo.  On the actual server, bindn == rootdn.

But we want to know if binddn on the master is the same as the updatedn
on the slave (which isn't necessarily true if binddn==rootdn ...)

Post your config files, because this really looks like a
misconfiguration, and we can't help find the error if you don't post the
whole config files and insist that the most probably cause of the error
message is not the cause.

Hmm, this sounds like you have your bind password surrounded by single
quotes and not double quotes (or something like that).

But, the error you posted was not a bind error ... so I'm confused.
Which problem are we trying to solve here????

BTW, 2.1.22 sucked as a replica (in my experience).
