Not confusion, just confirming that you had used the correct attribute.

To set an attribute using ldbmodify, you have to use an ldif and that 
must use the correct attribute including the correct case. If you use 
ldbsearch to find an AD object, then that is a bit looser, you can use 
an all lowercase attribute.

No, I was thinking in minutes, I have seen replication take approx 15 

Have you run dbcheck on each database ?

It may help if we could see a sanitised version of the ldif you added.

Also, have you tried explicitly asking for the attribute, some 
attributes are only shown if you ask for them in this way.
