Yes you will have maby some problems because there are two new operationnal attributes: entryCSN and entryUUID that are unkwown in 2.0.21. I've done the same as you, but i prefer to update openldap on master and slave. (2.0.27 to 2.3.24).
but I don't know if entryCSN and entryUUID are required or not.

If this won't work because of the different database format, how do I force
slapadd on the Fedora5 server to import the database in .gdbm format?

it's not possible because if slapd (2.3.19) handles a DB database it can't handle a GDBM database. (I try to do that, I find it's not possible because you can't generate a slapd that links with the two. but maby I didn't do the right things).
But I think the database format is not a problem. The only problems will come with the different versions of openldap.

thanks for your help,
