Hi all,

I'm working on an multimaster setup using the LDIF configuration (as
opposed to slapd.conf).  From my understanding of the documentation,
Mirror Mode is distinct from N-way Multimaster in that it is an
'active-active/hot swap' configuration, and writes need to go a single

In the admin guide's example found here:


the N-way multimaster has this attribute set:

add: olcMirrorMode
olcMirrorMode: TRUE

Could someone clarify what the olcMirrorMode attribute is for in the
N-way multimaster configuration?

It's the same. Mirror Mode IS MMR, only you set up an artificial method in front to route writes only to one of the Master's until fail over is required.
