The syncrepl replication mechanism is supported by the two primary
database backends: back-bdb and back-hdb.
See the {{SECT:LDAP Sync Replication}} chapter of the admin guide
for more information on how to use this directive.
The {{EX:starttls}} parameter specifies use of the StartTLS extended
operation to establish a TLS session before authenticating to the provider.
If the {{EX:critical}} argument is supplied, the session will be aborted
if the StartTLS request fails. Otherwise the syncrepl session continues
without TLS. Note that the main slapd TLS settings are not used by the
syncrepl engine; by default the TLS parameters from a {{ldap.conf}}(5)
configuration file will be used. TLS settings may be specified here,
in which case any {{ldap.conf}}(5) settings will be completely ignored.
Rather than replicating whole entries, the consumer can query logs
of data modifications. This mode of operation is referred to as
{{delta syncrepl}}. In addition to the above parameters, the
{{EX:logbase}} and {{EX:logfilter}} parameters must be set appropriately
for the log that will be used. The {{EX:syncdata}} parameter must
be set to either {{EX:"accesslog"}} if the log conforms to the
{{slapo-accesslog}}(5) log format, or {{EX:"changelog"}} if the log
conforms to the obsolete {{changelog}} format. If the {{EX:syncdata}}
parameter is omitted or set to {{EX:"default"}} then the log
parameters are ignored.
The {{syncrepl}} replication mechanism is supported by the {{bdb}} and
{{hdb}} backends.
