I can simulate the problem, since I have a cron job running at every 1 minute to execute query to the LDAP records, e.g. if the password is nearly expired, I will update a user-defined value. Since 4 servers will see that record will expire and set the record simultaneously at the same time, what will happen to this case ? It seems that it will corrupt the contextCSN.
The reason to have this cron job running so frequently is that I want to check the pwdAccountLockedTime, if this attribute is present, I will update a user-defined value and this will synchronize to other servers. My question is, when a user is locked in one server (the pwdAccountLockedTime attribute exists), why the LDAP will not sync this attribute to other servers ??? Is this spec. or program bug ? I need to manually update a user-defined attrbiute, then, everything will be in synced...
