In our setup we have clients authenticating against a consumer server. The consumer server
is chained to the provider server for writes and we have passwordpolicy configured
including lockout settings. We replicate all password data.
When I do a bind to the consumer(slave) I also see a bind to the provider(master) this
seems really silly. My understanding is that this behaviour is caused by needing to
centrally store login attempts. I have raised this matter previously but just wanted to
double check that the behaviour I am seeing is expected and not due to a misconfiguration
on our part.
