Re: Slave connecting to maser always stay connected?

Title: Re: Slave connecting to maser always stay connected?
Can you elaborate on “a firewall is flakey”?  The hosts are physically diverse, each side has 1 master, and 2 slaves, all 3 on the same subnet.  Even those connections are on and off.  Is there any logging that can explain why this would be happening?

Yes, that's what refreshAndPersist implies.  The connections from the
replica should stay connected to the provider, unless the network is flaky,
a firewall is timing them out, etc.  Or you stop/restart the slapd on
either side. ;)
