Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version 7.0 to 188.8.131.52.2 [Release 7.0 to 11gR1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Configure multimaster replication with two Directory Server instances.
Run idsconfig on both servers.
Try to add a new user, this gives the error message:
# ldapmodify -D "cn=<DS_ADMIN>" -p <PORT> -j <PWD_FILE> -e err -a -f <TEST_USER.LDIF>
adding new entry uid=<TEST-USER>,ou=People,dc=<SUFFIX_DN>
ldap_add: Referral hop limit exceeded
ldap_add: matched: dc=<SUFFIX_DN>
On checking the dse.ldif file for the 'nsslapd-state' value, instead of 'backend' the value is 'referral on update'. This is incorrect as these are masters and should be read/writable.
