setting rootpw for cn=monitor

Hi all,

I'm seeing an issue with setting the rootpw for the cn=monitor database and syncrepl replication (multi-master syncrepl).

I am seeing this problem with openldap 2.4.31 at the moment, but I intend to upgrade to 2.4.34 when that becomes available.

When I just have one LDAP server (ldap1 say), I can set the olcrootdn to cn=monitor and set the olcrootpw without any error, so I have something like:

   dn: olcDatabase={2}monitor,cn=config
   objectClass: olcDatabaseConfig
   olcDatabase: {2}monitor
   olcAddContentAcl: FALSE
   olcLastMod: TRUE
   olcMaxDerefDepth: 15
   olcReadOnly: FALSE
   olcSyncUseSubentry: FALSE
   olcMonitoring: FALSE
   olcRootPW: {SSHA}**************
   olcRootDN: cn=monitor

When I create another LDAP server (ldap2 say) and set up multi-master syncrepl replication for cn=config between ldap1 and ldap2
I see an error in the slapd log on ldap2 like: 

    olcRootPW: value #0: <olcRootPW> can only be set when rootdn is under suffix

No olcSuffix is set for the cn=monitor database in the cn=config, but all the cn=monitor DNs are of the form cn=X,cn=Y,...,cn=monitor,
so it seems that the suffix of the cn=monitor database is effectively cn=monitor.

Any ideas?
