Is there a "best" way to check to see if OpenLDAP replication is working?
I have one script that checks the ContextCSN of the root of the
database, which works to a certain degree. However, even when that
matches it seems that sometimes a "deep inspection" (actually traversing
the whole database and comparing each entry individually) of the
directory shows differences even when the ContextCSN of the directory
That's all our nagios check script does. If you're finding that there are
still differences in the contents of the directory even when contextCSN
matches, then there's likely something else going on. At least, I've never
seen the situation you describe in our production openldap cluster.
