[389-users] Re: Replication question

I think you are correct for a "no", from the admin guide:
What Directory Units Are Replicated
The smallest unit of of the directory which can be replicated is a database.
This means that one can replicate an entire database but not a subtree within a database.
Therefore, when creating the directory tree, consider any replication plans as part of determining how to distribute information.
Replication also requires that one database correspond to one suffix.
This means that a suffix (or namespace) that is distributed over two or more databases using custom distribution logic cannot be replicated.

I've got two 389 multi-supplier replicated instances that I want to replicate to two new ones just temporarily for migration purposes. Since this is production, it would be ideal if it could be replicating right up to the second I make the new ones live. However, I simplified the configuration on the new one and now I'm wondering if this scheme will still work.

On the old one, I have two replicated DBs, one mapped to ou=b,dc=a,dc=arizona,dc=edu and the other mapped to dc=a,dc=arizona,dc=edu. On the new one, I decided to have just one replicated DB, mapped to dc=arizona, dc=edu. Is it possible to replicate the old ones to the new instance? I'm thinking no, but I had to ask.
