Re: Access to a sync provider via back-meta
Thanks for your rapid and efficient answers.
Below you find my answers.
1) In the slapo-rwm man page I read : "This overlay is experimental."
But in the slapd-meta man page there is no such text. So I thought that the
rwm feature in this backend is stable.
Thanks, I'll remove that message. Right now, I think they have roughly
the same level of stability, as any feature/bug fix is consistently
applied to both.
2) For the crash of the overlay rwm you are right. It is now fixed. I
encountered exactly the problem explained in ITS 5923 and fixed in RE24.
3) For the crash of back-meta the diagnostic is very simple : back-meta does
not recocnize the LDAP_RES_INTERMEDIATE response type.
So it provokes a crash by asserting (0) in the line 1460 of
./back-meta/search.c in release 2.4.13, giving the follwing message :
read1msg: ld 0x9f29550 msgid 2 message type intermediate
slapd: search.c:1460: meta_back_search: Assertion `0' failed.
I will submit an issue on this topic next week after testing with RE24.
That's correct: back-meta does not handle that response; probably
back-ldap does not handle it either. Yes, please, file an ITS (for
back-meta suffices, I'll check if it affects other backends and other
Please note that even though this bug gets fixed, there's no guarantee
that sync replication works over back-meta. I suggest you file separate
bugs for not handling the intermediate response and for sync replication
over back-meta, if it doesn't work after the missing feature is implemented.
