I mean, I get "TLS negotiation failure" on the syslog when attempting to
change an attribute on an entry when using the slave server.

I am trying to create a master-slave replication with chaining overlay
enabled in the slave to redirect writes request to the master.

I have it working using ldap:// but I have not been able to configure
the chain overlay using a secure connection ldaps:// (running on port
5636 on the master)

My master server do not require client certificates.,

I added the following lines:

overlay 		chain
chain-uri		"ldaps://masterldap.example.com:5636"
chain-idassert-bind  bindmethod="simple"
chain-return-error   TRUE

But I get "TLS negotiation failure" on the syslog

I am using ldaps:// for replication, but I can't configure it for

Any hints?

Yes, correct.
