Thanks for your suggestion!
In your proposed scenario, is there a difference between removing
olcSyncRepl from the replica, and stopping the replica completely, other
than the replica being unavailable for read queries during backup ?
My understanding is that in both cases, replication would have to catch
up with the master with a full present phrase (unless I use a large
enough session log).
Since ITS#8486 and OpenLDAP 2.4.46, it seems that having a large session
log is a viable option, but how large could those modification allow the
sessionlog to grow? 100K ? 1M entries ?
