Now given that my redundant systems have a well-known IP address
that floats between them (the LEAD box gets the floating IP), would
it make more sense to run the LDAP servers as master/master with them 
replicating to each other?  Is this even possible?  If not, what
did you do to manually stage them back and forth as Master/slave?
Did you have to stop LDAP, swap out the slapd config files
and restart?
