I'm not sure I understood your question but I think my patch for
multi-mastering will help you.
I had some kind of the same problem but I had to install a failsave
environment. This means all my>ldap servers are masters and slaves at the
same time, they all accept write commands as they accept read requests. I
took the simplest approach by not redistributing write command the server
received from the user specified as replicauser. This patched version of
1.2.1 is online in a productive environment for over 3 months now with no
fail. We had two server errors on one of the LDAPs, after a reboot the LDAP
was synchronized automaticly with no errors.
