Do you mean that log entry ^?  I am seeing that entry on dc2-ipa-dev-nvan, the 
host that dc1-ipa-dev-van is contacting as its master when we attempt the 
ipa-replica-install.  Look through my earlier posts in this thread for a full 

Don't assume we have any idea what your hostnames mean, especially when
they differ only by a few characters. It is good to list them but I'd
also suggest you use terms like existing master and new server or
something so we can distinguish the players without having to slowly
parse every name.

Yes, of course that DN exists on all my masters.  With a 3 way replication it would have 
to exist because the current master is replicating to 2 other masters.  Here is the 
ldapsearch for all 3 existing hosts showing that DN 
(dn="cn=replica,cn=dc\3Ddev-globalrelay\2Cdc\3Dnet,cn=mapping tree,cn=config") 
which is apparently failing to be added because it already exists on all my hosts.

The important thing here is that cn=config is not replicated. It is
configured on each master during replica setup, exactly where it is
failing for you. Given that it is failing on ANOTHER server says a lot.

It is failing, I think in part, because this search on the remote master
is returning no entries:

[18/Jan/2016:09:28:33 -0800] conn=18732 op=9 SRCH
base="cn=replica,cn=dc\3Dmydomain\2Cdc\3Dnet,cn=mapping tree,cn=config"
scope=0 filter="(objectClass=*)" attrs=ALL
[18/Jan/2016:09:28:33 -0800] conn=18732 op=9 RESULT err=0 tag=101
nentries=0 etime=0

IMO this is the culprit. It should return the entry if it is in fact there.

Right after this is the ADD which fails with err=68 which means that in
fact, it does exist.

I'm not sure why this is happening. I don't immediately see why a
NotFound would be raised in this case but I'm guessing it is. It would
be interesting to walk through the code using the python debugger, pdb.

In any case the duplicate entry is due to the replica setup code trying
to configure the remote master for basic replication and this has
already been done.

Yes the replica code works as expected.

Next step is to investigate why the search returns nothing. ACI issue? Weird DB state?

Can other user fetch it? E.g. admin?

If so wow does "cn=replica,cn=dc\3Dmydomain\2Cdc\3Dnet,cn=mapping tree,cn=config" on the master server looks like?
