Running slapd 2.4.11 on both the consumer and the provider. The
provider has thousands of records with numerous attributes including
'userPassword'. The consumer got it's start from a direct copy of
the database files from the provider. All existing accounts have the
userPassword attribute on both the consumer and provider. Any time a
new record is added to the provider, it synchronizes all attributes
other than the userPassword field.
The provider has an account on it "dc=replica,dc=domain,dc=edu" for
the syncrepl to use from the consumer. An ldap search to the
provider using this account shows that it can see userPassword:
ldapsearch -x -LLL -b dc=endicott,dc=edu -W -D
returns the dn of
including the attribute of:
The consumer for whatever reason is not adding this attribute to any
records it syncs. All other attributes come over fine.
If I do a complete cleanout of the consumer and have it start it's
database directly from the provider, it does the same thing and pulls
over everything but userPassword.
The config of the consumer is listed below. Where could the problem lie?
Thanks to all those who responded. I built another consumer on a new
box with the same config file, and it is now synchronizing without a
problem. This is a weird one, and I don't know what the problem was,
but now I'm up and running with a new backup server.
