Re: Slurpd high availability

I have started looking into slurpd for server replication. We have a

I am going to put 2 different servers into two different locations, and
they need to be mirrors of each other. It looks like slurpd is the
answer. It looks like it would handle a slave going down well, but what
is supposed to happen if the master goes down?
The archives that I found say that multimaster is a bad idea. Any
thoughts on why?
Many, but they're already in the archives too, keep reading.
As solutions go, slurpd is a poor one and will eventually be removed
from OpenLDAP. Use OpenLDAP 2.3 with syncrepl. For your "mirror"
requirement, there is a "mirrormode" feature in CVS/OpenLDAP 2.4 that
addresses this need. It is also available in current releases of Symas
CDS if you don't want to build your own source.
