My both ldap server run in multi master replication mode.
So I think everything  should be the same on both servers all the time?
So it could work anyway?

I don't see why not.  The point of tdb2 was to not get different
uids/gids on different nodes.  However, you'd need to have only one
ldap server that they all use.  Your current setup would not work.
