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"

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
Postfix/Courier/saslauthd/Amavis to look to the localhost replica for
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 that time.
