Yes, that is what I am interested in.

I added the syncprov overlay to the cn=config directive on the PROVIDER as such:


Now on a brand new CONSUMER machine I created the following LDIF file (sync-seed.ldif):

dn: cn=config
objectClass: olcGlobal
cn: config

dn: olcDatabase={0}config,cn=config
objectClass: olcDatabaseConfig
olcDatabase: {0}config
olcRootDN: cn=ldapadmin,cn=config
olcRootPW: {SSHA}mysoopersecretpasswd
olcsyncrepl: rid=001 provider=ldap://my.provider.machine binddn="cn=ldapadmin,cn=config" bindmethod=simple
   credentials=secret searchbase="cn=config" type=refreshOnly

I then put the file in my openldap dir and cd there:
cd /usr/local/etc/openldap
mkdir slapd.d
slapadd -b "cn=config" -F slapd.d -l sync-seed.ldif

all is OK

I then start slapd:
/usr/sbin/slapd -d 256
slapd starting
syncrepl_message_to_entry: rid=001 mods check (olcDbConfig: value #6 provided more than once)
do_syncrepl: rid=001 quitting

Hmmm what have I done wrong?
