Re: olcServerID

In the third box of code, this appears to set up the Master node with 3

(which I assumed to be its identifier) is this correct?

The serverID config statement (olcServerID attribute in back-config) is used to inform a specific server about its own id within a local replication pool. Without URL, only one occurrence of serverID is allowed. When the URL is specified, multiple occurrences are allowed, but only one takes effect: the one whose URL matches the listener of the server. So the URL-qualified multiple occurrences of serverID basically allow to share the same configuration within multiple servers of the same replication pool, guaranteeing that each server will pick up the correct id based on the URL.
