Re: Issues with LDAP Replication

Yes I understand the concept of replication. My understanding is the updateref line should point the client to make changes on the master server. The original post that was denied told of the setup in further detail. When changing the password via smbpasswd it doesn't seem to refer samba to make changes to the master server.

I've been racking my brain for a while googling and reading like mad.
I've come to a wall. I have 2 OpenLdap servers setup 1 as a master and
the other as a slave.

This are now working about 50%. When I make a change on the master is
is replicated down to the slave without a problem. Yet when I make a
change on the slave it doesn't seem to carry back up to the master.

You do understand that the idea of replication is that only masters take modifications? That's why one is a "master" and one is a "replica". You don't make changes to the replicas and expect them to show up on the master. Now, you can do things like setup back- chain to *forward* modification requests to the replica up to the master, so things work right...
