auditlog is not appropriate.
Please can you explain why this is so?
Auditlog is a poorly written overlay that hopefully will be deleted
in the future. It kills perf, and in general is not recommended for
use. If you want a record of changes, I suggest you look at the
1. Can we use an LDIF backend with the auditlog overlay?
Why are you stuck on auditlog? As I said, don't use it.
2. Has anyone written a program to convert the auditlog data to an
LDIF format that can be applied with ldapmodify?
No idea. As I said, it's not really a usable piece of software.
One of the advantages of syncrepl (Although I use and prefer
delta-syncrepl, since syncrepl has not proven reliable in my
We are avoiding delta-syncrepl because, for reliability, we want to
use mirror-mode, and at
under section 22.214.171.124. Arguments against MirrorMode is written:
"Delta-Syncrepl is not yet supported"
3. Does this mean that we are aiming for a less reliable replication
with syncrepl that with delta-syncrepl?
You can still enable the accesslog overlay regardless of what replication

4. Is there any prospect of delta-syncrepl being supported with
Yes, that's a future request.
