Yeah, that works too. I forgot to add that in my configuration, we have a piece of software running on the LDAP replicas (lbcd) that determines whether or not the replica is in the load balanced pool. We kill the lbcd process and let it sit for 5 minutes, which will make sure it is out of the pool for short-lived clients, and then we shut down the server. ;)

We can't use hardware load balancing with the replicas because we use SASL/GSSAPI for everything, and there are some interesting problems there when it comes to replication.
