Re: how to configure multi-master


With all this talk about multimaster, could someone point me to some resources that describe industry standard implementations and best practices of OpenLDAP in multimaster mode for the purposes of high availability and robustness? I have yet to see comprehensive documents that describe solutions for most small to medium businesses, and would love to see something you recommend.

This is how I view multi-master as well. It's a implementation differentiation more so than technology difference.

Exactly. Enabling "mirrormode" is a prerequisite for multimaster.

The difference between mirrormode an multimaster (as far as I know) these days
(post 2.4.6) is really your architecture (whether you allow writes to one
master, or more), not the configuration (though more than two syncrepl
statements does mean that it can't be mirrormode).
