Re: syncrepl and memberof do not work well together

Hi Michael,

Like I wrote in my previous email, I have configured the memberof overlay in the consumer
too and it *does* work when adding/removing members from groups. But when an entry that
contains "memberOf" values is modified, these values are deleted in the consumer.

The configuration of the consumer db is nothing special but here it is anyway:

dn: olcDatabase={1}mdb,cn=config
objectClass: olcDatabaseConfig
objectClass: olcMdbConfig
olcDatabase: {1}mdb
olcDbDirectory: /var/db/openldap-data/testing
olcSuffix: dc=example,dc=com
olcAccess: {0}to * by dn.base="gidNumber=0+uidNumber=0,cn=peercred,cn=extern
 al,cn=auth" manage by * break
olcAccess: {1}to attrs=userPassword by anonymous auth
olcAccess: {2}to dn.base="dc=example,dc=com" by * read
olcRootDN: cn=admin,dc=example,dc=com
olcDbIndex: objectClass eq
olcDbMaxSize: 209715200
olcSyncrepl: {0}rid=010 provider="ldaps://ldap.example.com" searchbase="dc=e
 xample,dc=com" type=refreshAndPersist retry="5 12 30 10 300 +" schemachecki
 ng=on bindmethod=simple binddn="cn=ldaptest,ou=admins,dc=example,dc=com" cr
 edentials=******* exattrs=memberOf tls_cacert="/etc/certs/ca.pem"

dn: olcOverlay={0}memberof,olcDatabase={1}mdb,cn=config
objectClass: olcMemberOf
objectClass: olcOverlayConfig
objectClass: olcConfig
objectClass: top
olcOverlay: {0}memberof
