[2] Configure LDAP Provider. Add syncprov module.
root@dlp:~#
vi mod_syncprov.ldif
# create new

dn: cn=module,cn=config
objectClass: olcModuleList
cn: module
olcModulePath: /usr/lib/ldap
olcModuleLoad: syncprov.la

root@dlp:~#
ldapadd -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f mod_syncprov.ldif

SASL/EXTERNAL authentication started
SASL username: gidNumber=0+uidNumber=0,cn=peercred,cn=external,cn=auth
SASL SSF: 0
adding new entry "cn=module,cn=config"

root@dlp:~#
vi syncprov.ldif
# create new

dn: olcOverlay=syncprov,olcDatabase={1}mdb,cn=config
objectClass: olcOverlayConfig
objectClass: olcSyncProvConfig
olcOverlay: syncprov
olcSpSessionLog: 100

root@dlp:~#
ldapadd -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f syncprov.ldif

SASL/EXTERNAL authentication started
SASL username: gidNumber=0+uidNumber=0,cn=peercred,cn=external,cn=auth
SASL SSF: 0
adding new entry "olcOverlay=syncprov,olcDatabase={1}mdb,cn=config"
[3] Configure LDAP Consumer.
root@node01:~#
vi syncrepl.ldif
# create new

dn: olcDatabase={1}mdb,cn=config
changetype: modify
add: olcSyncRepl
olcSyncRepl: rid=001
 
# LDAP server's URI

  provider=ldap://10.0.0.30:389/
  bindmethod=simple
 
# own domain name

  binddn="cn=admin,dc=srv,dc=world"
 
# directory manager's password

  credentials=password
  searchbase="dc=srv,dc=world"
 
# includes subtree

  scope=sub
  schemachecking=on
  type=refreshAndPersist
 
# [retry interval] [retry times] [interval of re-retry] [re-retry times]

  retry="30 5 300 3"
 
# replication interval

  interval=00:00:05:00

root@node01:~#
ldapadd -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f syncrepl.ldif

SASL/EXTERNAL authentication started
SASL username: gidNumber=0+uidNumber=0,cn=peercred,cn=external,cn=auth
SASL SSF: 0
modifying entry "olcDatabase={1}mdb,cn=config"

# confirm settings to search datas

root@node01:~#
ldapsearch -x -b 'ou=people,dc=srv,dc=world'

# people, srv.world
dn: ou=people,dc=srv,dc=world
objectClass: organizationalUnit
ou: people
