Dear all,

I'm setting up a replicated directory service, so far I have a single provider and a single consumer with Syncrepl in refreshOnly mode. The consumer is a complete shadow copy of the provider, ldap clients can read from the consumer but not write to the consumer because it is a shadow copy. Next I would like "refer" ldap clients that wish to write to the consumer to the provider. Based on the notes here : http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/referrals.html, I would like to how to do this by using the olcSubordinate keyword. I've read the olcSubordinate section in slapd-config man page and I don't see a way forward and I'm not even sure that using olcSubordinate is the correct approach, since the steps described in http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/overlays.html#Chaining appear more relevant to set up I'm attempting.

Any guidance much appreciated.


I'm just looking for a nod in the right direction. I'll re-phrase my question, how would you set up up a single provider (single master) with one or more consumers (one or more slaves) so that clients which try to write to a slave are able to do so because the slave handles the referral to the master and the client knows not that the slave directory it is connecting to is read-only?
