AFAIK, slurpd was deprecated and replaced with syncrepl. I
personally have never used slurpd so unfortunately I will not be able
to help you much. That said, I would expect the log files to tell you
something useful (or at least something you can post here). To give
you some ideas, with syncrepl you see a lot of ldapsearches. So, you
then look for the error (err=something) entries in the log file, find
what what that error means, and then see if that and the arguments for
this last ldapsearch provides any clues.
Another thing to check is security settings like selinux. That usually
always bite me.
