I want to set up a cluster of ldap servers. In that cluster, I want:

up, or the standby if it's down.
However, I want operational attributes like password policy attributes to be replicated across the cluster. My understanding is that if I set up two suppliers and N consumers, operational attribute changes (such as password policy attrs) on the consumers will not replicate across the cluster.
Where did you find such information? in order to syhnchronise all user attributes and operational attributes just use *,+ as attribute list, as lined out in man slapd.conf(5)
This will allow operational attributes to be replicated from the provider to the consumer, but changes to password policy state attributes on consumers will not be replicated to providers or other consumers.
I think a more generic solution (that does not require all servers to be masters) is required ...
