  No, it doesn't.  The documentation explicitly says that it's not the same as proxying.  It's similar, but not "the same".

  via the Replicate-To-Realm attribute... as the documentation says.

  The documentation says how to use the "replicate" module.  If you try to do anything else, it won't work.

  No, you can't invent configuration and expect it to work.

  You can't put "home_server" into the configuration for the replicate module.

  Read the debug output... it will show you that it is NOT loading the "CLIENT-ACCT-SERVER" configuration.

  Realms and home_servers go into proxy.conf.
