Hello. Has anyone seen a syslog message like "deferring operation: awaiting write", especially right before the server crashes?
I see this message on our *secondary*, which should send referrals to people who try to write. Is it reasonable to assume the only process that could be writing is slurpd on our primary?
We're running 2.2.13 w/ bdb 4.2.52 (patches applied). You can see our spec files at http://www.wfu.edu/~borwicjh/spec/ .
I would be more interested to know what your DB_CONFIG file has in it. And your slapd.conf on the replica. :)
