You don't need to copy over the database to the slaves, the master will
sync over the whole database if the entires are out of sync and the
log entries are out of sync enough that it can't do a sync.

Applying FORYOU messages a database thats already in sync is probably
a very bad thing. What I can't understand is why the client is  
looping and
logging several.

The version number (2469) in your example is always the same ?

      ipropd-slave[8760]: kadm5_log_replay: 2469: Entry already  
exists in database

iprop-log is the truncate_log, replay_log, dump_log folded together.
so the manpage for iprop-log manpages applies to the separate commands.
