I'm not sure what you are trying to avoid here... Slapcat/slapadd are
always faster than sync replication. Why would you lose data from the
other server while doing this? contextCSNs should be preserved w/
slapcat/slapadd, so the server being converted will just catch up using
sync replication as before. You may wish to look at ITS#7427 though. The
fix for that is in current RE24.
