As far as I know, configuration cannot be replicated right now.  Note that
plain replication of configuration is less than ideal, because the
producer and the consumer have to differ.  There's a development effort in
that direction, which consists in populating a "fake" config database on
the producer which gets replicated to the consumer.  This does not work
yet, as it requires two components (back-relay and slapo-rwm) to support
table-driven configuration, which is not trivial (see
for discussion).  Of course contributions are welcome.

The above mentioned setuo works when starting with slapd.conf; however,
the configuration directory doesn't get populated accordingly, so at
successive restarts the replicated config is lost.
