This documents the installation of the LDAP replication server at IMB.

Replication Server


slurpd is the daemon that propagates updates from the LDAP server to the replication server. Please note that slurpd runs on the master LDAP server, not the replication server. The replication LDAP server simply receives changes via slurpd and by no other means.


Our implementation of the LDAP replication will use an intel computer, running Redhat Advanced Server 3, though the replication server was also tested on various other flavours of redhat and fedora.

I strongly recommend using a utility such as stow to manage these packages in an organised way.
