First of all, thank you for your quick answer.
I am aware I should migrate, but for the moment, the only solution I have would be to migrate to OpenLDAP 2.3.32, wich should solve issue (ITS#4622).

However, I am not sure at all that this bug is what we encounter. The contextCSN is not updated on the master, and therefore the replication stops. But When the master is restarted (contextCSN updating again), the replication restarts a well.

Is it possible to use a newer version of OpenLDAP as slave ? ie. Could I use OpenLDAP 2.3.11 as master and OpenLDAP 2.3.32 a slave for a while ?

Is this not recommended because syncrepl mecanisme changed a lot between those two versions ? I will give it a try anyway. OpenLDAP 2.4.x will be our next target, but needs some additionnal work...
