I would like to have an advise on how to use syncrepl.
Here's the situation: I plan on having one master server, and, later, adding a
slave server. I would like this slave to have all the data contained in the
master + replicate any modification done on the master. Thus, if the master
fails, my application (knowing the address of the slave server) could detect it
and switch to the slave server.
But what is the best way to do when I switch on the slave server ? Is there an
automatic way for the synrepl setting to initiate the slave in the same state
as the master when the slave is switched on.
For the moment I managed to have the slave replicate the changes made on the
master, but I could not auto-initiate the slave to the same data that the
master contains. So I did it by hand by exporting/importing an ldif file.
I must add that my database contains very few data (about 200 entries).
Thanks a lot for any feedback
