Thank you Quanah,

You mean slapcat both ends and diff the two ldif files? I am afraid I
don't understand.

If so, are the two output files expected to have exported entries in the
same sequence?

Can you please be more detailed?

I would generally expect a replica to export the database in the same order as the master. But in general, yes, you compare the LDIF generated by the master and the replica. If the replica is out of order in relation to the master, you can use the ldifsort perl utility that's found fairly easily to sort both ldif's into entry order prior to doing the diff.
