Re: syncrepl failure

I'm trying to set up syncrepl for the first time, using 2.4.7 and
copying the mirror node configuration in the OpenLDAP Administrator's

I first started my two LDAP servers without any syncprov/syncrepl
configuration in my slapd.conf, and inserted a few ou's which represent
my basic container hierarchy.  I also added my syncrepl user (the one
assigned to 'binddn' in my syncrepl configuration line.)  I gave this
user read access to everything.

access to *
        by dn="userid=ldapsync,ou=admin,ou=account,dc=mtholyoke,dc=edu" read
        by self read

Then I shut down OpenLDAP, and uncommented my syncrepl configuration.

overlay syncprov
syncprov-checkpoint 100 10
syncprov-sessionlog 100
syncrepl rid=1
          retry="60 +"

mirrormode on
serverID    2

"serverID" is a global option, it works here but it doesn't belong here.

Next I started OpenLDAP again, and inserted a test user.  I can see in
my logs that the other server is attempting to syncronize.  The bind
operation appears succesful, but then the sync fails with the following

Feb 19 16:17:18 drab slapd[27432]: conn=10 op=0 BIND dn="uid=ldapsync,ou=admin,ou=accounts,dc=mtholyoke,dc=edu" mech=SIMPLE ssf=0

I suspect I'm simply overlooking something obvious, or not doing the
initial setup quite right, but like I say, this is my first time through
this, so any advice is appreciated.

At a guess you have the DEREF option set in an ldap.conf or ldaprc file somewhere and it's getting sucked into slapd's default libldap context.
