Well, my idea doesn't work anyway - when the ppolicy overlay updates the pwdFailureTime operational attributes, it doesn't change the entrycsn, so doesn't change the contextcsn, so never gets factored into replication - even with all servers set as multimaster, these operational attributes don't propogate.
I'm guessing for similar reasons, chaining won't work either.
So... Looks like operational attributes like password policy will never be replicated, so things like password lockout occur only on a per server basis, not across a replication cluster of ldap servers.
Is this even possible with openldap?
