Re: Syncrepl: 3 simple questions

Hi Dieter!

v014ldap:/# ldapsearch -x -D 'cn=admin,dc=nodomain' -w XXXX -b "" -s
base supportedControl | egrep ""
v014ldap:/# ldapsearch -x -D 'cn=admin,cn=config' -w XXXXXX -b "" -s
base supportedControl | egrep ""

Looks good, doesn't it?

I am at 2.4.11.

I know, I should upgrade to 2.4.19.

I am currently trying to do that. But I cannot find any .deb (Debian /
Ubuntu) package for 2.4.19. There is some stuff for 2.4.17 or so in
Debian testing, but I guess you want me to use the really latest stuff.

Unfortunately, I am struggling for 1/2 day today with getting the 2.4.19
package compiled.

Just because I am courious:

a) What does that supportedControl atrribute mean? (I guess it means
syncprov available, doesn'it ?)
b) I am sure there are tons more of those diagnostic attributes like
this one. I know for example that I can ask for SASL mechanisms
supported, etc. Are those options documented anywhere?
