Goal

The ODSEE 11g documentation has the following description about "Restoring a Master in a Multi-Master Scenario"

Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.7.0)
Part Number E28972-01
7.4.5  Restoring a Master in a Multi-Master Scenario
https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E29127_01/doc.111170/e28972/ds-backup-restore.htm#bcaqs

In the case of multi-master replication, other masters may process change operations while a given master is being restored. Therefore, when restoration is complete, the new master must also receive new updates that were not included in the restore data. Because restoring a master might take a significant amount of time, the number of pending updates might also be significant.

To allow convergence of these pending updates, newly restored masters are automatically set to read-only mode for client operations after restoration. This is true only when restoring a master by importing data from an LDIF file at the command line, or by using a backup to perform a binary copy.
