No XDAS support; OpenLDAP has an internal form of auditing implemented in
slapo-accesslog(5), which creates a service database that contains
detailed logs of every access to the database, according to
draft-chu-ldap-logschema.  I see two possible approaches for standardizing
auditing according to Open Group standard:
- develop a standoff tool that reads the accesslog database (e.g. via
plain LDAP) and reformats it according to XDAS, e.g. using OpenXDAS'
- develop an overlay similar in functionality to slapo-accesslog(5) that
writes audit logs to xdasd.
Feel free to issue a request for enhancement via the ITS

No, it uses LDAP itself for administration, via the cn=config interface.

Replication is detailed in the admin guide
