i think 2.4.15 will be not so far away. but most distributions,
even the newest versions, are normally shipped with older openldap-releases,
so the best practice (for now) would be to strongly recommend always to
use the latest
openldap version (>= 2.4.15, when out) and compile it from the scratch,
as this setup is the only way
to exclude side effects, which surely will appear in conjunction with
older openldap versions.
considering the fixes made in 2.4.15, i think it would be the best to
apply and push the
olc-conversion-changes, when 2.4.15 is out. in this case, we can
remove the workaround for olcSyncprovConfig (in cn=config).
what do you think?
i found one little bug in the latest version of the provision.py script
that i have commited to you,
it will display the wrong help-parameter, when using mmr without olc:
lines: 1457 + 1458
- if ol_olc != "yes" and ol_mmr_urls is not None:
- slapdcommand="Start slapd with: slapd -F " + paths.ldapdir + "/slapd.conf -h \"" + ldapi_uri + " ldap://<FQHN>:<PORT>\""
+ if ol_olc != "yes" and ol_mmr_urls is not None:
+ slapdcommand="Start slapd with: slapd -f " + paths.ldapdir + "/slapd.conf -h \"" + ldapi_uri + " ldap://<FQHN>:<PORT>\""
(should be "-f" instead of "-F" in the sladpcommand-line)
