replying to myself to clarify the original doubt:
executing something like this on master1 machine:
dsconf master1 repl-agmt create --suffix dc=global --host slave1.example.net
--conn-protocol LDAP --bind-dn cn=repmanager,cn=config --bind-passwd XXXXXXXX
--bind-method SIMPLE master1-to-slave1
will create replication agreement as described in 15.2.4. of official docs AND will modify
nsslapd-state and nsslapd-referral on slave1 as described in 15.2.2. so you don't need
to manually perform that last step on consumers.
and I would like to note too that enabling replication with dsconf will also create
replication manager if you specify --bind-passwd so you save an extra step.
the command should be something like this:
dsconf master1 replication enable --suffix dc=global --role master --replica-id 666
--bind-dn "cn=repmanager,cn=config" --bind-passwd YYYYYYY
I'll leave all this here just in case any other script lover needs to modify their
