    Default Simplify the docs for promoting an LDAP replicant to master?

    So... I'm looking at LDAP - Zimbra :: Wiki , which says: "After the master server is up, enable replication on the master with the command /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapenablereplica"

    And then I'm looking at Promoting Replica to LDAP Master - Zimbra :: Wiki which gives you a long list of different steps, many of which have multiple substeps of stuff to do to the slave to promote it.

    Taking a quick glance through that zmldapenablereplica script, it looks like it's doing almost the same thing as a large chunk of those steps.

    If that script is really a match for those instructions it would *greatly* reduce the complexity of a slave promotion.

    From a little bit of walking through the steps that script is taking, it looks like steps d through f are all done by that script, and that it depends on step g being done first before running it.

    Can anyone give an additional set of eyes to verify that? If this is correct, it looks like you could eliminate steps b through f from those instructions, and insert "run /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapenablereplica" between steps g and h.

    No, you can't use zmldapenablereplica to do what you are asking, because it'll know the server isn't a master yet.

    But that's why I suggested that step g still needs to be done first. Isn't that the part that tells it that it's a master?

    Feel free to try it at your own risk.
