Re: LDAP server farm?


i think its not possible.
As far as i know this will corrupt the Data in your Database Files.
But i think there should be a locking mechanism which shoud you
beware from multiple opens.
I'm not a Berkley DB expert so this will be wrong.

Why don't use Replication ?
The Database is stored local on the Server -> faster performance
And your NFS Share will be a singe-point-of-failure.
