 I'm facing the same problem in these days. I'm using Heartbeat and
the problem is that when the failed node comes back Heartbeat doesn't
start it automatically as slave. I'll try to put a script that starts
OpenLDAP automatically as slave at boot time and see what happens.
Then the master will update automatically (thanks to slurpd) this new
slave... at last I hope so :-)
