You should consider using a "bdb" or "hdb" database in place
of an "ldbm" database (see below).

Thanks Kurt, I need to make as little change as possible on the Redhat7 machine, so on the Fedora5 box, I'll use "bdb" database instead.. as long as replication between the two machines work.

I am not sure if this is a good idea, but I am trying to set the

2.0 likely cannot handle all the operational attributes
managed by a 2.3 server, but you may be able to filter
those out.  IIRC, there is a FAQ on this (if not, there
should be).

Thanks for the clear explanation and prompt reply, I'll dig through the FAQ
