    I would like to setup a Master / Consumer relationship that only does one
    way replication on demand. We have complex scripts that update one server
    (the master) and needs to be verified / approved before replicating to the
    consumer. I understand how to setup replication in general and have a
    multi-master setup for other services so I am not asking how to do initial
    setup. My first thought is to set the replication interval to 30 days and
    forcing a manual sync - but this is the part I am not sure how to do. Is
    there a command to force a manual sync before the normal replication
    interval? Thanks in advance and sorry if there is a simple answer I am

    Thanks for any help!

Hi Peter,

I already had to face this need. My solution was to use a RefreshOnly sync
with a large period, and restart the OpenLDAP consumer when the sync is
needed. I am not sure we can do this without OpenLDAP restart.

With cn=config you can simply modify the olcSyncrepl stanza and it will restart its timer at that point, with an immediate refresh.

Good to know, thanks!
