[389-users] Re: Documentation as to how replication works

Aha! I poked through the code and figured it out:

Perform an ldapmodify against "cn=replica,cn=...,cn=mapping tree,cn=config" adding the attribute "nsds5Task" with the value "CL2LDIF". It then writes the LDIF file to the same directory that contains the changelog database files, which is defined in the "nsslapd-changelogdir" attribute of "cn=changelog5,cn=config", which, for me, is "/var/lib/dirsrv/slapd-<DOMAIN>/cldb".

To be clear, here's the ldapmodify LDIF that worked for me:

dn: cn=replica,cn=...,cn=mapping tree,cn=config
changetype: modify
add: nsds5Task
nsds5Task: CL2LDIF

The LDIF that's created shows the actual changed data and not just a blob, which certainly helps.
