Re: Help -- replication broken with 2.1 -> 2.2 Master upgrade!

	This is a belated followup to my message.

Turns out that at some point in recent past, OpenSSL started using file-locking to arbitrate access to replication log (it would be dot-locking except that lockfile doesn't begin with a dot). So, /etc/openldap has to be writable by the slapd process. However, the openssl-servers package (under Redhat distros) doesn't set the ownership and attributes on it in such a way.

After I chmodded /etc/openldap to 0775, and chgrp'ed it to ldap, replication started working.

Which replication log remains empty?  The slapd replog, or the slurpd

The one slapd is supposed to produce, and slurpd is supposed to consume

but even its mtime attribute remains unchanged. It's almost as if the
replica directives in slapd.conf simply don't exist, as far as slapd is

Have you started slapd with -d -1 on your master, and

a) Seen what it says about the replication directives, and any particular reason why they may be being ignored


b) written a single change while in that mode to see what slapd says?

I will do that if the current upgrade (I am building 2.2.26 RPMs) fails to help. I will have to set up a testing server for that purpose, and being lazy, I wish to avoid that headache.
