I ldap speach persistant search and content synchronization are
different operations with different control oid, although both
operations have quite similar intentions. With regard to
OpenLDAP, the consumer operation syncrepl and the provider operation
syncprov are different operations but not mutually exclusive, as an
example see test 019 syncreplication-cascade of the test suite.
OpenLDAP does not support draft-ietf-ldapext-psearch, thus control
oid 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.3 is unknown to the DSA.
What you can do is to attach a syncrepl consumer,
i.e. a Net::LDAP::Control::SyncRequest object, in order to receive
notification of added or modified entries.
