I am trying to install openldap 2.3 to work as automatic referral
chasing where all update queries should be automatically directed to my
master server, I would really appreciate a sample config.
Well, you just got one (see my post). Now someone tell me the answer
to /my/ question?
The docs of openldap are really not clear
The details: I need to setup a master server and a replica, and put
both of them behind a load balancer. In case a write operations is
sent to the slave, I need the slave to direct the client to the
master server rather than having the client chase referrals manually.
I only have one (set of) client utilities that understands referrals
at all, while shell and Perl scripts running on the consumer - some
using OpenLDAP clients (which don't understand referrals) - are
absolutely dependent on chaining. So thank deity I found out how by
persisting and reading the OL docs.
