Re: Brining up replication with an already live server?

I have two DSAs of the same version (2.4.20).  One is empty and the

syncrepl directives to the live server and then bring up the other
server and add the syncrepl directives - will the second server then
syncronize with the live server (which already contains configuration,
etc...).  Or do I need to start with two empty DSAs?

You can sync the empty server with the live server, but pulling down an entire database thru the network protocol is a lot slower than slapcat/slapadd...
