RE: replication security

the question was not what binddn or password you are using for
master/slave, the question is ... is this binddn ... "ldap manager
account" (at the master end) the rootdn of your slave server?

do you have the line 
rootdn          "cn=Manager,dc=my,dc=local"
in your slave slapd.conf file

if this is the case, please refer to


section 14.4.1. Set up the master slapd

also, Buchan 's message explained everything.

hi ran, 

i'm using the ldap manager account for replication at the master end,
shouldn't i be doing that? the passwords are the same at both ends for
that account...

replica host=slave.my.local:389  binddn="cn=Manager,dc=my,dc=local"

just a thought, the problem you could not update could be you use
the<br>rootdn of slave as updatedn.<br><br><br>-----Original

security<br><br><br><br>hi everybody,<br><br>i have a couple of small
questions regarding my openldap replication<br>setup, if anyone knows
the answers i would appreciate it enormously :-)<br><br>if i run with a
cleartext password for the updatedn, and turn off<br>readonly on the

referral ldap://master.my.local<br><br>but i have read that the slave
should really be readonly, ye!  t 
when i add<br><br> readonly on<br><br>to the slave configuration, it
won't allow me to update!<br><br>my other query regards the {SSHA}
password option used by the master to<br>bind to the slave, as i can't
get this going either. i.e.<br><br>master-<br><br> bindmethod=simple
credentials={SSHA}dfsEWF4fw4wrqdsFSD<br><br>does this hashed manager
password need to be generated on the slave or<br>the master? or should
either suffice?<br><br>thank you very much in advance for any
