When attempting to replicate,
the following error occurs.

ERROR
-----------------------
ERROR<8282> - Replication - conn=13 op=2 msgId=3 - Duplicate Replica ID Failed to start Replication Session for suffix dc=suffix,dc=com.


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Set up replication between 2 masters, a hub, and 2 consumers.
2. Remove replication agreements from the master to the hub, and remove replication agreements from the hub to the consumers.
3. Disable replication on the consumers, and then re-enable replication on the consumers making them masters through the DSCC (where you can not specify a unique replica ID for each new master) - OR - enable replication through dsconf enable-repl and do not specify a unique replica ID for the -d switch.
4. Create replication agreements from the masters to the new masters.
