The -q flag can be used in place of dbnosync.

Well, you weren't explicit in how you were loading the slaves.
You should probably do as follows:
1)slapcat on old master (let's say to old.ldif)
2)slapadd old.ldif on new master
3)slapcat on new master (let's say to new.ldif)
4)slapadd new.ldif on consumers

Only contextCSN difference would not lead to replication failures, but entryCSN
differences would ...
If the entryCSN after import on the new master is different to the ldif you
imported (which is likely when doing migration over major versions), then your
data isn't consistent, even if you are using the same original ldif ...
