The documentation is correct.

perl -MMIME::Base64 -e 'print decode_base64("+HYDCTA4MDIwMzM3MTguMzAwMTExWiMwMDAwMDAjMDAxIzAwMDAwMA=="), "\n";'

Can we get your bdb version, your config and the logs of an empty mirrormode

Also, has this always happened on the same machine? What are the specs of the servers?

Is this a fresh install?

Kind Regards,
