Re: replication between a back-sql master and back-hdb slave

thanks, yes there are probably many ways to replicate a SQL database to LDAP by writing the right code I just thought that since back-sql does already the job of mapping SQL databases to an LDAP tree, maybe there was a replication tool between that SQL backed LDAP tree and another LDAP tree with bdb/hdb backend

the LSC project someone pointed seems to be the right tool, I'll have a look into it

ok thanks

back-sql is an experimental backend, it has no official support. Any development on it is purely based on the needs of people who use it and submit patches to enhance it in the ways they need. There are probably better ways to do what you want.

For example, when I was at a previous job, we had written a program that could convert our oracle DB to LDIF, and import then we would import that into LDAP. We used an event system as well, that when there were updates to the Oracle DB, would trigger ldap writes to the master of the changes as well (using the same program, it could run in a one-off LDIF mode or as an event driven program pushing updates to LDAP).
