I have two servers (server1 and server2) running openldap 2.4.39-8 and they are configured to replicate via MirrorMode replication.
Here is what I am seeing in order:
1) On server1, I create a two users: deleteUser and modifyUser.
2) I can see that these users are then properly synced to server2.
3) On server1, slapd is stopped.
4) On server2, I now delete 'deleteUser' and I modify 'modifyUser'.
5) On server1, slapd is started.
6) The two slapd instances replicate.
Both servers now have the deleted user 'deleteUser' in their databases like the user was never deleted. However, the user 'modifyUser' was properly updated in both places.
I would expect that 'deleteUser' wouldn't exist in either database. I would expect that 'modifyUser' would be properly modified on both servers.
Why would this happen? Do I need to configure something specifically so deletes are handled properly? Is this just a quirk with how replication works?
