Re: Determining the master server

Is there any way than an OpenLDAP client can tell whether a particular

I think the referral mechanism resulting from performing a write operation on a slave is the intended mech. In 2.3 (actually, in HEAD; scheduled for 2.3) you may browse the configuration in back-config ("cn=config") and see if a server is a master or a slave;

Only the directory administrator has access to cn=config, so clients in general cannot do this.

or you may ask for a feature like
registering this info into back-monitor ("cn=monitor").
