It is a bit more complicated than that.
syncrepl is a client operation, which requires ldap client
configuration, specified in ldap.conf(5).
You can set these specifically for the syncrepl client as a part of your
syncrepl configuration stanza, rather than ldap.conf. See slapd.conf(5) or
slapd-config(5), the section on syncrepl/olcSyncRepl, the sizelimit and
But, regardless, the server limits on the master trump any client settings
that are higher than the defaults, so as Dieter noted, they must be
increased on the master to "unlimited" for at least the replicator DN.
This is of course covered in the admin guide. For example, in section
18.3.2, we find:
# Let the replica DN have limitless searches
limits dn.exact="cn=replicator,dc=symas,dc=com" time.soft=unlimited
time.hard=unlimited size.soft=unlimited size.hard=unlimited
as one example.
