Re: IMHO incorrect info in the documentation

Hi Kurt.

A bit strange reply...

I can see that what documentation has is different from what the real life has.
My intention was just to draw ones attention to this inconsistence.
People read the documentation, supposing that it reflects real things.

What is it about? "Go there, do that...". A sort of bureaucratic machine in OpenLDAP project? :-)

Sorry if it was sharper than needed.


And people usually say "hello" in the beginning... didn't you learn that as school?

Maybe I'm wrong, but...

In this section of Admin Guide you mention of files containing slurpd log, rejection etc.

13.5.1. Replication errors

When slurpd propagates a change to a slave slapd and receives an error return code, it writes the reason for the error and the replication record to a reject file. The reject file is located in the same directory as the per-replica replication logfile, and has the same name, but with the string ".rej" appended. For example, for a replica running on host slave.example.com, port 389, the reject file, if it exists, will be named


By default slurpd generates the following files in a different directory. At least slurpd from 2.2.15 (considered as STABLE) does so...
