syncprov and translucent
As one might expect, mixing the translucent and syncprov overlays together
on top of the same bdb database doesn't work. Because translucent uses
back-ldap, lastmod is being set to off, while syncprov needs it to be on
in order to function.
I wonder if it might be possible to change the behavior of back-ldap to
allow lastmod again? In my case, I only care about replicating changes
that are stored in the local bdb database by the translucent overlay, and
I never send updates back to the target ldap server.
I suppose I could come up with something where I slapcat, then let the
slaves pick up the ldif and see if it's different from the last time. If
it is, shutdown slapd, delete the database files, slapadd, start slapd.
I really want to avoid doing that though, since I consider that a hack and
Thoughts? Is enabling lastmod for back-ldap just a matter of commenting
out some lines?
