I'm currently writing a report to justify to the powers above that we should upgrade OpenLDAP and move to SyncRepl from slurpd.
A couple of questions:
* Using SyncRepl, what are the time limitations as far as slave refreshing goes? i.e. master & slave are in sync at the moment, can I switch off the slave and turn it on a week later and retrieve all adds, updates & deletes that occurred in the week or is there a 24hr limit? If there's a limit, is it configurable?
* Again using SyncRepl, is it possible to create a slave from an empty DB? I.e. I create a new slave with an empty DB, can I just start it and let syncrepl send the entire contents of the database over the wire? I understand this is a great way to congest the network in practice, but I'm only interested in theory at the moment.
If these aren't possible using syncrepl out-of-the-box then does anyone know any other mechanisms for achieving these goals?
