Dear Folks,

I am trying to improve my understanding of the RID before making many
large deployments of syncrepl.

My understanding is that the replica ID (RID) is unique within one
level of [provider] -->  [consumer], [consumer],... relationship.

That is not what the documentation says. Where did you get this

I misunderstood the documentation :-/

An RID is just a unique tag within a single slapd.conf or slapd.d.
Its only purpose is to provide an unambiguous ID that can be
referenced from the slapd -c option. That's all.

Thank you very much for your helpful clarification.
