We have setup a couple of servers in N-way multimaster config, using back-config, as explained in the admin guide. These all use RE24, checked out today.
We are now trying to add another server to the existing cluster. To do this, we want to replicate the existing cn=config branch from the cluster, to initialize the config for the new server.
To do this, we start the new server with a minimal cn=config branch, making it a syncrepl consumer to an existing server (consumer only, no multimaster on this new server):
How do you expect to replicate the cn=config branch from a multi-master and end up with only a replica? I'm lost. Once it finishes, it'll be a multi-master, not a pure replica.
If you really want to have fun, set up another database on the master to store the cn=config tree for replicas under a different branch, and then use slapo-rwm to rewrite it as a config tree for any replica that connects to it. This should work in theory, although I've never done it.
Thanks for your reply Quanah.
