Thanks for all of this helpful information.  We should be good to go now.

It certainly would have been nice to know, back when we got started with
this, that a rootdn is always needed with syncrepl.  This detail is not
documented anywhere that I can find in the man page or Admin guide, and
certainly not in syncrepl section.  Even a note under the rootdn or syncrepl
directive in the man page would have saved us a lot of time.

Thanks again for everyone's help!
