OK, I will provide you a basic slapd.conf with ldif data, but tomorrow
because I'm not at work now.
Just a short question : do you confirm you performed your search using the
meta suffix as base ? I mean "dc=com" in the generic example I provided:
This question is important because, when server2 is stopped, I have no
problem to retrieve entries from server3 using "dc=suffix3,dc=com" as base
object in my ldapsearch command. Server3 seems not being requested only when
Another noticeable point when server2 is stopped is the following: if a
search on "dc=suffix3,dc=com" is performed first, then a new search on
"dc=com" is OK i.e. it return entries from server1 AND server3. It seems to
behave like once the channel to a server is opened, it is then contacted
each time it is a candidate. It seems thus that I felt in a very specific
case which is :
1/ A sever A which has never been contacted since slapd startup
2/ One server B above in the list which is unreachable.
Could you just test an ldapsearch on the root suffix just after the slapd

Objet : Re: RE : Slapd-meta stop at the first unreachable candidate
I first met the problem on a pre-production openldap server. One URI
corresponding to a load-balancer VIP routing to 2 target LDAP servers. As
both of them were stopped, the vip:port was unreachable. And as this URI
ahead in the list, all other URI were unreachable either.
I then reproduced the same problem several times adding URI correpond to
non-existant targets at different locations. Returned entries were
systematically coming from URI above the non-existant URI.
Do you need any further information ?
Well, we're still at "works for me" vs. "doesn't work for
you". From my
tests the code works. If you want anything fixed you should follow my
advice: provide a simple basic example slapd.conf (and ldif data) that
causes the problem in order to make me see slapd-meta failing, and I can
look at the issue.
