Hi Andreas

I too have the same issue, but i think, if we using slave ldap server in
i hope it's possible, the slave LDAP server has updateref entry in
slapd.conf, which points to
master LDAP server, so any changes is referred back to PDC,

but i am not sure, what happen's when the link between PDC and BDC is down,
and if any changes are done, how is to propogated when the link is up again.
