With SyncRepl it's even easier; just configure the slave to suck over whatever you need, fire up "slapd", and stand back...

I never used SyncRepl, but after reading about it, I somehow feel that changes are replicated to the slaves not when the changes are made on the master (which is almost immediate with slurpd), but when a slave wants, i.e. slave queries the master several times an hour (and causing unneeded traffic sometimes, especially when there are many slaves).

Or do I perhaps understand SyncRepl quite wrong? :)
