One of the lovely things about open source software is, well, that the source is open. A
grep discovers that this messages comes from "aclparse.c". I.e., the portion
of the code
responsible for parsing ACLs. Thus it would appear that you have ACLs referencing the
(which as noted in slapd.access(5) is not subject to ACLs).
Hope that helps!

Thank you! It's been a while since I've done much programming, and I'm just
getting into ldap.
With your pointer and a bit of manual reading
), I modified our
was originally set up by someone else), as follows:
# THESE ARE DEFAULT BEHAVIORS AND RESULT IN WARNINGS ON STARTUP. Commented out
1st occurance of 2.
#access to *
# by dn="cn=support,dc=bio,dc=nsm" write
# by * read
Earlier in the slapd.conf is the line 'rootdn
"cn=support,dc=bio,dc=nsm"', so that is the rootdn
that was being granted write.
After doing a `sudo service slapd-local force-reload`, the ldap.log shows things starting
a complaint and syncrepl working. Then I checked another server that is a client, and I
use my network login. So, it seems all is well. Now I just have to wait and see if the
emailing warnings. I believe it will be cleared up, because the messages didn't show
in the ldap.log
when I reloaded it.
