I haven't fully investigated, but in SLES11 SP2 YaST seems to refuse
updates (users and groups) on multi-master if either "mirrormode: true"

Sounds like there is something seriously broken with YaST. How does it talk to a regular master if it doesn't have updateref incorrectly set? I.e., how does it "know" the difference between a single or multi-master configuration?

In any case, I always advise avoiding SLES. They can't release SP's without breaking backwards compatibility. SP2 broke SP1 backwards compat. SP3 breaks SP2 backwards compat. It's insane. How that can be considered "enterprise" is beyond me.
