I disagree! Since the only modifications that arrive at the replicas

the master ldap server.There are valid reasons to do it either way - for one thing,
instantiating the refint overlay on the replicas reduces network
traffic. Also if you have a hot standby setup you want the replicas to
be configured as nearly identically to the master as possible. (In

Sadly, while there are valid reasons for doing it either way, the
existing code forces me to run refint in the way I don't want to --
namely on every replica.
I do not have, nor do I want, a hot standby configuration. If the
master server goes down, no updates are possible until I get it fixed.
(and since I'm running the master as a Guest under VMWare ESX 3 with HA
configured -- hardware problems on the master are not a big concern to me).
So, how can the interaction between accesslog (required for syncrepl to
work) and refint be resolved so the refint overlay can be configured
after accesslog (so it gets executed before accesslog logs the
transactions for syncrepl)?
