What version is this?
I found that with 2.4.21 a tls_cacert option solved my problem.
I have the problem in 2.4.12, 2.4.18, 2.4.19, 2.4.20 and 2.4.21.
slapd-ldap(5) provides more TLS options.
I know and I have configured some of them. But the problem still exists. I
can't see any packets on the network device from the slave to the master. If I
restart the slave slapd then all works fine for a time.
But I will read the man page again.
Today have sent a mail to the list with two traces. One with a successfull
passmod and one with nonworking passmod. Here the link:
The differences in the traces are hdb_dn2id entries. When the passmod over the
slave is ok then I can see entries like:
<= hdb_dn2id: got id=0x5
<= hdb_dn2id: got id=0x9
<= hdb_dn2id: got id=0xa
When the passmod failed these entries are not in the trace. After restarting
the slapd I can change passwords over the slaves and I can see the hdb_dn2id
entries in the trace.
