  Not familiar with syncrepl. How can it make the  management of the
slaves easier?

I would advise reading the OpenLDAP 2.3 administrators guide at:


syncrepl is a replacement for slurpd that does pull based replication. I.e., the slaves connect to the master, and pull down changes, rather than a separate process running on the master pushing data to the replicas.
