We are using OpenLDAP 2.3.33 in a master/slave setup with slurpd and hdb
When performing the modrdn operation against the master, no update directives
for the attributes 'modifiersName', 'modifyTimestamp', and
written to the replog file. Hence, the databases of master and slave differ by
the values of these attributes after replication.
This bug can be reproduced using e.g. the ldapmodrdn tool. OpenLDAP versions
back to (at least) 2.3.24 are affected.
This is not a bug, it is a consequence of the design of slurpd. slurpd uses
LDIF (RFC2849) for its replog format, and simply propagates LDAP operations
as recorded there. In LDIF a modrdn record can only specify newrdn,
deleteoldrdn, and newsuperior parameters. Likewise, these are the only
parameters that can be specified in an LDAP modrdn operation. This design
limitation is one of many reasons why slurpd has been deprecated.
If you want to perform replication and preserve these attributes, you can use
