I haven't fully investigated, but in SLES11 SP2 YaST seems to refuse updates (users and groups) on multi-master if either "mirrormode: true" is missing, or "updateref". It's a bug in YaST, yes, but I have to live with it. I could do updates with LDIF, but other people want to use YaST...

BTW, the manpage says:
       updateref <url>
              Specify the referral to pass back  when  slapd(8)  is  asked  to
              modify  a  replicated  local  database.   If  specified multiple
              times, each url is provided.

So one could guess you'll have to specify all your masters using updateref...

Maybe the clarification would be to state that "replicated" means "slave copy". Also on "local": Can slapd modify and database that is not local?
