Re: OpenLDAP 2.3.13: slave slapd doesn't start after adding updatedn

I'm on OpenLDAP 2.3.13 and trying to setup replication with slurpd. When I created the initial nodes the slave slapd was working fine on the slave. The moment I added the updatedn directive in slapd.conf, the slave slapd doesn't start up at all. When I added -d 256 I got the following error and the line #57 has the updatedn directive

/usr/local/ldap/etc/openldap/slapd.conf: line 57: frontend database cannot be shadow.
slapd stopped.
connections_destroy: nothing to destroy.

The following is what I did. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

You haven't read the Admin Guide. You put the updatedn directive in the wrong place; it is a database-specific option and you put it up front where the global directives are.
