To complete to my situation I have followed the admin Guide to enable
Multi-master replication.

I have a question :

Since you "push" the configuration to activate the replication on the 1st
consumer after the master, some entries on 1st consumer are fresher than
the one on the Master, such as olcDatabase={-1}frontend,cn=config or

Is there a way not to keep these messages saying than the "new entry is
older than ours" ?

Thanks in advance for any answer ?
