Re: slurpd -d9 --- Invalid credentials

Thanks Aaron, Buchan, and Erich,
    using clear text passwd.  the replication to the slaves work now.

I will look at using SASL, so that I can have an encyrpted passwd for it.

Just curious,  anyway I can use encrypted passwd for the proxyuser also?  This passwd is currently in /etc/ldap.secret with perm 0600 in clear text.  I've read that this has to be on every system (ldap server or client).

because the argument to "credentials=" must be (to use the term of 
slapd.conf(5)) a "simple password," unhashed. That is, do not put
"{MD5}blah," but rather put "secret" itself (which hashes to {MD5}*).

If this bothers you, switch to a SASL mechanism. You have the same issue 
with <server2>, by the way.
