Hello openldap community,

I now have set up a second machine also running openldap 2.4.6

playing around with it trying to get it to act as a syncrepl consumer.
I remember reading somewhere in the openldap documentation that
it should
fairly straight forward with a simple 10-12 line LDIF file to get the synrepl
consumer synched up with the provider.
Can someone please post an example of such a simple kickstart file?
Thanks ^6,
Sounds vaguely like you want this
(from <A HREF="http://www.openldap.org/pub/hyc/LDAPcon2007s.pdf"; target="l">http://www.openldap.org/pub/hyc/LDAPcon2007s.pdf</A> page 20)

dn: cn=config
objectclass: olcglobal
cn: config

dn: olcdatabase={0}config,cn=config
objectclass: olcdatabaseconfig
olcdatabase: {0}config

Slapadding this will fully initialize a new server if you point it at an existing provider, but of course you need to have the syncprov overlay configured on the config database of the provider.

See test049 in the test suite for a more detailed example.

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?


Can you slapcat your config back out and show us everything?

slapdcat -n 0 > config.ldif

/usr/sbin/slapd not /usr/local/libexec/slapd ?
