Re: Data portability between slaves

Given two slaves with identical releases and data, how portable are the
BDB files and SLAPCAT files between them? That is, does the entryUUID
attribute (or anything else) contain host-specific information?
They are identical (or should be).
I've recovered a slave after hard drive failure several times simply by
stopping slapd on a different slave, and then copying the database from
that replica to the one with the new hard drive (note that you want to run
db_recover after stopping slapd, before copying over the files).
entryUUID, etc, *must* be the same on all systems for syncrepl to work
