I have been working on setting up an LDAP server to use for the new file server and been running into trouble with the replication portion. The initial setup was pretty straight forward but the problems started when I tried to match the slave LDAP with the master LDAP. To make a long story short it was a permissions problem on the slurpd log lock file. I assigned it a file in the /var/log directory but it couldn’t create the file so I changed it to the /var/tmp folder and it started working right away. Its pretty slick now. Any change made in the master is immediately made in the slave.
