They are identical (or should be).

I've recovered a slave after hard drive failure several times simply by stopping slapd on a different slave, and then copying the database from that replica to the one with the new hard drive (note that you want to run db_recover after stopping slapd, before copying over the files).

entryUUID, etc, *must* be the same on all systems for syncrepl to work correctly.
