If I get your point corrctly it's easy (and, I think, yu
should be able to get it by RTMF :)

you want to replicate different subtrees of your DIT
to disfferent slaves, but portions of the same subtree
may go to more than one slave.

Then all you need to do is set up different replicas with
different subtrees.  Each replica will get exactly the
subtrees it needs.  Example:

you have suffix "dc=example,dc=com" and subtrees
"cn=sub1,dc=example,dc=com", "cn=sub2,dc=example,dc=com"
"cn=sub3,dc=example,dc=com" and finally
and you want to replicate a mix of them to different slaves.


replica host=slave1.example.com
        # more replica args
replica host=slave2.example.com
        # more replica args
replica host=slave3.example.com
        # more replica args
replica host=slave4.example.com
        # more replica args

Does this answer your question?
