Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Replication in mirror mode is configured for OpenLDAP server (slapd) configuration database (cn=config). Replication configuration (olcSyncrepl) is changed. Consequence: The cn=config database is silently removed from mirror mode and it cannot be longer modified without restarting the slapd daemon. Fix: Upstream patch applied to fix correctly handle the changes of replication configuration. Result: Change of replication configuration preservers the state of mirror mode correctly, cn=config database can be modified with no need to restart the slapd daemon.

Description Patrick Hemmer 2012-05-15 11:04:32 EDT
When slapd is running with cn=config, and "olcMirrorMode: TRUE" is set, whenever you modify an "olcSyncrepl" attribute, the server is silently taken out of MirrorMode, and you are no longer able to edit the cn=config database until slapd is restarted.

This is observed with openldap-servers-2.4.23-20.el6.x86_64

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a server with "olcMirrorMode: TRUE" and perform a modification on an "olcSyncrepl" attribute.
2. Then try to modify anything in the cn=config database.

Actual results:
"shadow context; no update referral"

Expected results:
No error

This has been reported and fixed upstream
