Enabling MirrorMode causes my initial cn=config seeding to fail:
4fc26d8c /tmp/slapd.conf: line 31: <MirrorMode> database is not a shadow

I've compared my config to the one in the official N-Way Multi-Master guide 
but couldn't spot the relevant difference here.

The error message sounds misleading to me, suggesting one of both mirrors 
should be a shadow DB while I actually want both to be equal.

Any idea? Did I miss something basic?
