I think you will have to provide some more detail about the setup and
the exact queries that are not doing what you want, so that people can
understand the problem.

Note that entries that cause referrals are special, and must be
updated in a particular way. You should be using the -M flag on
ldapmodify when loading or updating such entries.

[ Strictly, I am talking about 'Continuation References' here -
entries that cause part of a search to be continued on a different
server. 'Referrals' are a simpler mechanism that only allow for
queries to be passed to a server with a *wider* range of knowledge. ]

Another thing worth checking is that you are not using the same name
for the master server's rootdn and the slave server's updatedn.
The master server should not generally have an updatedn at all.
Modifications performed by the updatedn are *never* replicated.
