comment Configuring different read and write targets for OpenLDAP
I can do that if I have to - it'd just be a lot easier to get good test coverage if I can simply clone clients and flip a couple of settings to point at the new testing server. The process to add new data is also long and slow enough that I'd like to avoid it if at all possible.

comment Does the initramfs image file need to be updated whenever grub.conf is modified?
I clarified the original comment - no, it is just grub 0.97. For some reason the CentOS 6 Anaconda installer which we use to install our OS does some weird symlinking of /boot/grub/grub.conf to /boot/grub/menu.lst. It has been a while since I've dealt with grub stuff so I forgot that that may be confusing.

Right - the 'little' downtime is what I'm concerned about.
