Re: OpenLDAP 2.4 replication to a write-only LDAP server

I am trying to set up replication from an OpenLDAP 2.4 master to a
write-only LDAP slave. This slave is not really an LDAP slave, but has
an LDAP interface to have changes replicated to it. In earlier OpenLDAP
releases I could use slurpd for this, but since this has been deprecated
I am trying to get it working using syncrepl. Based on what I found in
the online manual I am trying to achieve this with an additional
OpenLDAP 2.4 proxy which replicates changes it learns from the master
through syncrepl to the slave through the LDAP backend. Is there some
way I can get this to work? If the slave is a real LDAP server, then the
proxy works, but it stores the contextCSN on the slave, and not on the
proxy. If I have some form of storing this contextCSN elsewhere then I
might try to start the proxy (in case it dies) with this contextCSN
value specified on the command line. Also, when I try to ban searches on
the slave (since it is a write-only slave), the proxy thinks none of the
master entries exist on the slave and then happily tries to add them to
the slave, resulting in duplicate errors.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Did you see
This info will be updated online soon, but the cvs version is.
It can also be achieved without a seperate proxy.
