First of all, I'm new to this list, so, please, forgive me if this is a
wrong place for the questions below, and feel free to redirect me
wherever is more appropriate.
The issue I'm facing as stated above is regarding the syncrepl and
I'm writing a Perl module to be used with back_perl and noticed
behaviour that seems strange. Making some modifications on the master
server (provider) and looking on the relevant modifications on the slave
I saw that they didn't quite match. There were some extra REPLACE
operations made by syncrepl. Later investigation showed that the cause
of those REPLACE's was different attribute order on the master and slave
nodes. synrepl.c says that:
/* We assume that attributes are saved in the same order
* in the remote and local databases. So if we walk through
* the attributeDescriptions one by one they should match in
* lock step. If not, look for an add or delete.
Which seems strange to me. As a result syncrepl makes a REPLACE for
every attribute whuch is "misplaced" in the local object.
This is probably not an issue if master and slave both use the same
back-end module. Which is not true in my case.
So, the questions are:
Is that replacing of "misplaced" attributes by syncrepl is expected
behaviour or just a side effect of its syncrepl_diff_entry diff'ing
Does attribute order matter? Is it specified somehow (sorted by
Should this issue be reported as bug?
