Thank you, restarting the server did the trick! (I thought I had tried 
that, sorry!)

That is interesting. Does that mean that every apacheDS server is 
automatically configured to provide replications and only the client 
needs to be configured (in a standard setting)?

I still have an issue that is a bit more complex. The circumstances are 
the following:
There is one machine running apacheDS storing already some real world 
production data in a partition we created (o=Universitaet 
Tuebingen,c=DE). The ultimate goal is to replicate the data in this 
partition to an OpenLDAP system, which we so far did not manage to do.
Short version of the question: Is that possible at all and if so, what 
are the steps to take?

Our plan to tackle the issue, was to start with a virtual machine with 
apacheDS replicate dummy data with a structure like the production data 
to another apacheDS instance on a second virtual machine.

After your hint with the restart, I managed to replicate a user under 
ou=users,ou=system from one VM to the other. I am now wondering how 
replication of a partition (or data therein) is meant to be configured.

My current configuration on the client looks like this:

ads-replconsumerid: 2
ads-replstrictcertvalidation: FALSE
ads-replusetls: FALSE
ads-replsearchtimeout: 0
ads-replsearchfilter: (objectClass=*)
ads-replsearchsizelimit: 0
ads-replattributes: *
ads-replrefreshinterval: 60000
ads-repluserpassword: secret
ads-repluserdn: uid=admin,ou=system
ads-replprovport: 10389
ads-replrefreshnpersist: TRUE
ads-replsearchscope: sub
ads-searchbasedn: ou=myOrganizationalUnit,o=Universitaet Tuebingen,c=DE
ads-enabled: FALSE
objectclass: ads-replConsumer
objectclass: ads-base
objectclass: top
ads-replaliasderefmode: never

An ldapsearch from the client machine searching through 
ou=myOrganizationalUnit,o=Universitaet Tuebingen,c=DE on the server 
yields a result for a user 
uid=noms,ou=users,ou=myOrganizationalUnit,o=Universitaet Tuebingen,c=DE

I created a partition o=Universitaet Tuebingen,c=DE on the client in the 
hope that this would help. Afterwards I created a
ou=myOrganizationalUnit as well. Even after a restart I cannot see any 
user data on the client.
What am I doing wrong? Are there any logs that would tell me what is 
going on?

Thank you very much for your help!
