Re: 2.3.11 syncrepl failing - send_ldap_response: ber write failed
Thanks, Quanah, I should have added that I am aware that 2.3.11 is all
of three months old, and I am aware of 2.3.14, and am hoping to get the
time to build an RPM based on it (we try to avoid CVS software on
production servers), and I am sure that eventually the folks who run the
www.openldap.org website will see fit to declare 2.3.14 the latest
stable release instead of 2.3.11, however for now I cannot "just
upgrade", and I have looked at the changelog for 2.3.14 and while I see
some syncrepl changes, none of them seem to mention fixing a problem
that causes slapd to exit ungraciously.
By the time I get 2.3.14 installed....Oops! Look at that! 2.3.15 is out!
I can't always "Get the latest version" because new versions appear too
quickly. I know that it's a waste of everyone's time to be debugging an
older version (and if "upgrade" is the answer, then upgrade it is), but
it's also a waste of time chasing the newest version only to learn that
I didn't have a configuration value set correctly - and 98% of errors I
find are the result of my misuse of software, not from actual bugs.
I really only need to know if anyone has any idea what it is trying to
write when it fails with a "ber write failed"? I've already "worked
around" one bug in syncrepl (the one about not creating glue entries)
and would be happy to work around this problem while syncrepl
stabilizes. I'm MUCH more comfortable using the "stable" release.....

I have a SuSE 10.0 Master running 2.3.11 (from the RPMS at
ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/OpenLDAP/2.3/i386/10.0) and a syncrepl
slave on a busy mailserver (also SuSE 10.0/2.3.11), and configured

Other questions aside, I will note that 2.3.11 is a rather old release
at this point, and significant fixes to syncrepl have occurred since
