Re: replication security (i)

hi quanah.

i've been using the oreilly book on ldap admin for a bit of guidance on this, but from what i can make out any changes i make to the slave stay there and aren't redirected to the master... (with readonly turned off that is)

is it password related? does it make a difference which hashed password i use for the rootdn (ie. can i use the same SSHA coded password at both ends or do i have to generate them separately?)

or am i barking up the wrong tree? :-)
