Re: N-Way Master replication no contextcsn

As a noob upgrading appears to easier said than done.  I am running on
Ubuntu 10.04 on my master and I have tried to create packages from the code
I downloaded from the web site and the install just doesn't work.  So I
found an RPM and and converted it via alien to a deb file and used dpkg to
try and install and even with --force it erred out trying to overwrite the
slapd.d folder.  Is there and easy way to build the package as a deb file
so I can install it and also add it to my repo for the other servers.

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.
