Re: resynchronizing partial replica after ACL change

I'm running a couple of partial replicas, where the replicated content
is narrowed by provider ACLs. All is fine. Now, I need to extend the
replicas with a new attribute, so I extend the ACL to allow reading of
this attribute as well. How can I get the replicas synchronize this new
attribute without downtime? Is forcing a full reload by slapd -c rid=1
a good solution?
That should work, for a standard provider/consumer replication.
Does that incur the slapd restart downtime only, or
would the replica database be in a crippled state until the full resync
No crippled state. Just inconsistent, since some entries will have the
new attributes and others won't have updated yet.
