Openldap Replication FAQ's

Solution Unverified - Updated -

Issue

  • How do we check if openldap replication is working by using a program?

  • What would be the effect of updating/deleting/adding a record on site A only and later on, the network issue is fixed ? Will site B catch up ?

  • Will plain ldap lookups work if we have a load balancer which has the openldap in site A and B as members and the network between site A and B has failed ?

  • Where are the ldap logs and what text needs to be checked to determine if replication is working or not working ?

  • How long does the LDAP servers retry replication before it gives up ? What if the network outage was a whole day or a week?

Environment
