You need to check what you know then ;-) Who told you above or did you make it up?


Multi-Master means just that. Write to *any* master and replication is handled by Syncrepl not

It wouldn't be Multi-master is there was one "true" master, as that's not multi-master!

slapo-chain can be used to "chain" writes back to a Master from a slave.
