We have been using mirror mode for some time as a simple way for us to
have an up to date copy in case of a crash and load balancing. We have
been using the older slapd.conf configuration in Ubntu Hardy and are now
moving up to 2.4.28 in Ubuntu Precise.
a) Don't use builds provided by Debian/Ubuntu. Build something sane linked
b) Use a current release (2.4.34)
c) There is no difference in configuration between "Mirror Mode" and MMR.
They are the exact same thing configuration wise. The *only* difference is
that with "mirror mode" you use some sort of balancer so that only a single
server is available for writes at a given time.
