Hi Howard and Philip,

Thank you very much for your emails.

Well, it doesn't work for me, and hasn't for the two weeks I've been wrestling with it.

Could you please post a *working* LDIF file of Section 18.3.3 "N-Way Multi-Master"?
(I can substitute my real values if you keep the "$xxx" labels in there, of course.)

I want to be able to feed the above LDIF file in to slapadd and obtain both config db replication and also data replication.
The only change I should have to make for my 3 OpenLDAP servers is that the Server#1 should have "olcServerID: 1", Server#2 should have "olcServerID: 2", etc. 

Thanks very much.  Best regards

In that case, my original surmise is correct:  The OpenLDAP Administrator's
Guide's Section 18.3.3 "N-Way Multi-Master" definitely is buggy.
Because my LDIF file is a direct copy thereof (except for my environment
values substituted in instead of the labels such as $URI1, of course.)

The example in 18.3.3 works perfectly when you substitute the correct values in for the variables and follow the steps listed.

How can this be reported as a bug, please?  (In OpenLDAP documentation or/and
And can a *working* sample LDIF file be provided, please, for this important
replication design, n-way multi-master?
