Re: N-Way Master replication no contextcsn

The file structure is stored in module definitions and they are then
applied to the server in their proper place via the puppet agent.  The ldap
servers are running and I can write to individual servers.  I an just
having issues with the replication.  The one thing I see is the node
identifier in the CSN, the second to last set of numbers, are all zeros.
The CSN looks like a date actually  Should I take that out of the puppet
file and when I do will it regenerate the CSN ?  Also, is the modify
timestamp some that would be regenerated if I removed them..  The configs I
provided are actually from the puppet server.

1. You are using an ancient openldap version 2.4.28 compiled by your
distribution.  Please start by updating to a current 2.4.35 build from

2. You say both servers have the same configuration through puppet ? I see
you are using cn=config. How are you distributing this configuration. You
should not write any files to slapd.d via puppet or other means.  Use
slapcat/slapadd -n0 to export and import configurations.
