hi everybody,

i have a couple of small questions regarding my openldap replication
setup, if anyone knows the answers i would appreciate it enormously :-)

if i run with a cleartext password for the updatedn, and turn off
readonly on the slave, all works well, i.e.


replica host=master.my.local:389
 bindmethod=simple credentials=mypass


updatedn "cn=Manager,dc=my,dc=local"
 referral ldap://master.my.local

but i have read that the slave should really be readonly, yet when i add

readonly on

I think you are confusing things... By "readonly" it is meant that people shouldn't be able to write changes to the slave, only to the master. If you have correctly set up replication, this will be the case by default.
