Because the client I am working for uses source-compiled versions of OpenLDAP and is curently running 2.3.11 or 2.3.32. There is no newer package for the moment. We are working on a OpenLDAP 2.4.16 or newer, but, production is critical and we can not wait for this one to be released (by our team).

I know very well that many changes have been made between 2.3.11 and the latest 2.3.x and even between 2.3.32 and the latest 2.3.x, but we can not afford to migrate to 2.4.x right now.

The project that is using OpenLDAP 2.3.11 is running Solaris 10 SPARC from source.

I have justed tested it. OpenLDAP 2.3.11 as master and OpenLDAP 2.3.32 as slave : it WORKS. The question is, is it reliable ?
