The following procedure shows an existing, working replication agreement which is then broken by changing the password within the agreement.

Note - The correct way to change the password within a replication agreement is to use
'dsconf accord-repl-agmt' and not to change the password within the agreement as shown in the "Breaking Replication" section below. For demonstration purposes ldapmodify is used. It should be noted that the use of ldapmodify to change the replication manager password is deprecated in DS 6.x and is only used for demonstration purposes.

Example of 'dsconf accord-repl-agmt'
