We do it like that; your writes actually will go 'straight' to the master 
LDAP (not Samba as your diagram shows). 
The master LDAP is configured so that it updates the slave. 
So, the master LDAP is the only writer to the slave. (via a referer)

It is as safe as your VPN (quite safe) 

Kind regards

[Samba] Replicated LDAP


I would like to have a central LDAP-Server in my main office and a
replicated one in my satellite office, connected via VPN. Then I want my
SAMBA-PDC in the satellite to use the local LDAP. I think this should
end in:

Samba         <->      Replicate
Samba          ->      Replicate
Samba          <->     Central LDAP

Am I right with my assumption? Is this setup possible and advisable?
