Re: Best Practices for configuration management with cn=config?

I'm using puppet for configuration management and with the slapd.conf

However I'm running an overlay that pukes with a slapd.conf and had to
convert over to cn=config.

That's a pretty odd overlay; it's currently not possible to write support for cn=config without inherently supporting slapd.conf at the same time.

 Now I'm not sure how I want to manage
this.  Can I safely modify the files while slapd is running?  I
wouldn't expect it to pick up the config changes without a reload, but
if I want puppet to push configs and reload will this be a valid

No, and no.

Or do I need to do something with an LDIF of the config and have some
kind  of ldapadd/ldapmodify mojo?
