into syncrepl (make sure to upgrade to 2.3.30 first) and mirrormode.

Due to reasons beyond my control, I'm currently at OpenLDAP version slapd 2.2.13 (Aug 18 2005 22:22:34). As such syncrepl, based on your versioning guideline below isn't an option.

I assume you are aware that OpenLDAP 2.2.13 is an extremely old release. 2.2.30 was the final 2.2 release. 2.2.13 has multiple security vulnerabilities present it, and large numbers of stability bugs. Mayhaps that can be reason enough to convince the folks admining it to do a very needed upgrade.
