I would recommend this approach with the addition of a load balancer
to balance all the slave ldap servers. I have setup this up at
my current company and it is working great for user authentication.
I have 4 ldap servers being balanced this way. I am using LVS
(linux virtual server) for the load balancers. While yes this
design does have problems with writes.. so what? Do I really
need to change passwords or add user accounts 24/7 365? I can
afford some write down time in my environment. It's the reads
that are critical:)
