Good morning Ulrich,
I believe there is a misunderstanding regarding the purpose for multiple
olcServerIDs in the slapd.d configuration. By listing server ids for all of
the masters in your MMR architecture, you can essentially make all of
master servers' configurations identical. Slapd will apply the serverID that
matches the server's FQDN and ignore the rest.
That part of information is exactly missing in the manual page
olcServerID: <integer> [<URL>]
Specify an integer ID from 0 to 4095 for this server (limited
3 hexadecimal digits). The ID may also be specified as a
decimal ID by prefixing the value with "0x". These IDs
required when using multimaster replication and each master
have a unique ID. Note that this requirement also applies
separate masters contributing to a glued set of databases.
the URL is provided, this directive may be specified
times, providing a complete list of participating servers
their IDs. The fully qualified hostname of each server should
used in the supplied URLs. The IDs are used in the "replica
field of all CSNs generated by the specified server. The
value is zero. Example:
olcServerID: 1 ldap://ldap1.example.com
olcServerID: 2 ldap://ldap2.example.com
Domain/IP address resolution should be handled by DNS; not the slapd
configuration. The serverID is only used by the other producer servers for
communication, so set each olcServerID to use the FQDN known by the other
producer/master servers in the MMR architecture.
3 Master MMR Architecture Example:
olcServerID: 1 ldap://server1.example.com
olcServerID: 2 ldap://server2.example.com
olcServerID: 3 ldap://server3.example.com
You are not going into detail of what I wrote: If you have a multi-homed
server with different FQHNs for the IP addresses, you still want the server
(the host, not the interface) to have ONE uniqie ID.
What if your server1.example.com
are two interfaces on
the same server (maybe for redundancy purpose)?

I don't quite understand (replicated cn=config for MMR):
Assume a server has two IP addresses and names n1.d.o, n2.d.o associated
with it. So the
olcServerID: 1 ldap://n1.d.o:389
olcServerID: 1 ldap://n2.d.o:389
is illegal. How would the correct statement look like? How would it look
like if I also include ldaps: URIs?
