load balancing openldap and handling referrals
I'm hoping if anyone can provide any advice about the following scenario
that we are trying to setup
| | |
master slave1 slave2
LDAP clients access the load balancer as myldap.mydomain.net while the
following are internal host names
master = master.mydomain.net
slave1 = slave1.mydomain.net
slave2 = slave2.mydomain.net
If an ldap update is sent to either slave1 or slave2, a referral is sent
back to the client with the internal address of the master but since the
internal address is not visible to the LDAP client (it only sees
myldap.mydomain.net), how can it forward the request to the master?
Is this a setting that must be handled by the load-balancer or is there a
smarter way of handling the referral? If anyone of you are load balancing
your ldap servers how do you handle LDAP commands that must modify the data
(delete/modify/add) when it hits the slave and a referral is generated?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
