I have a ldap database I'd like to replicate to different slaves. Data
is organized as follows:
ou=domain1 ou=domain2 ou=domain3
Replication would be made at domains level, replicating domain1data to
one server, domain2 to another one and so on. I know I can't have all
the data in the same database so I need to chop the data out into
Here is my questions: what is the better way to distribute the data
among different databases but keep a "virtual" view of the whole tree
for clients? I mean I don't want the clients to send three or four
queries in order to search for a user. I'd like to make organization
transparent to clients.
Another requirement is (I guess that's not too complex) I need to
maintain some domains data out of the main server so for example, I'd
need to maintain domain3 data in a different server and replicate it to
the main server.
Any idea, suggestion or advice?
Thanks in advance
