The Admin Guide says that only hdb and bdb will work due to the indexing
and other data needs.
It says no such thing:
15.3.2. Set up the consumer slapd
The syncrepl replication is specified in the database section of
slapd.conf (5) for the replica context. The syncrepl engine is backend
independent and the directive can be defined with any database type.
The example it gives is a master with "bdb" and
the consumers with "hdb" and my issue is that the example provided does
not work as such.
The example works perfectly well for me. There is no way that just
changing the database type would affect it. You must have changed
something else as well.
