We are running 2.3.43 Openldap on Centos 5.3 systems. I have one provider and two consumers. I believe the consumers were working fine in terms of receiving replication data and staying synchronized until today. I have this entry in slapd.conf
The problem is that I had to completely restore the provider’s entire ldap database from a backup ldif file after screwing up over 200 accounts. I got the provider back to the way I wanted, but now the consumers won’t synchronize (replicate) any more.
1. Should syncrepl ultimately be able to replicate after a major change to the provider such as a ldif restoration? Or should I expect to have to reload the consumer entries from scratch from a provider generated ldif in situations like this?
2. I thought I read once that the interval settings was still important for when refreshandpersist missed an update. Is that true?
