this ensures you have consistent entryCSN and contextCSN
That's of course right.
But that will also more than double the time needed to load a backup on
a mirrormode setup.
This procedure should only be needed if the LDIF doesn't already contain
correct CSNs. If you're loading a backup from a 2.4 slapcat you can just
slapadd it on all servers at once.
But I would guess I could do it like this to save time:
1) slapdadd -S 1 -q -w -l data.ldif
on server 1
2) slapcat server 1 > newdata.ldif
3a) Start server 1
3b) slapadd -q -l newdata.ldif
on server 2
4) Start server 2
I would expect server 2 to catch up quickly with server 1, and of course
I would not have mirroring initially while server 2 is loading.
