Or just one master to replicate from.

Hmmm..., you could do (not tried this):

slapcat -n 0

Do this on a configured slave to get the right config.ldif etc.

change all DNs to whatever you plan to store the data under, and then use
the rwm overlay to deliver it all out of the directory in the original
cn=config format.

You could then replicate from that.

Just a thought.
