The OpenLDAP Client and Multiple DNS Records
How does the OpenLDAP client library handle multiple A records being returned for a DNS query for an LDAP server?
That is to say, if "host ldap" returns 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199, will the OpenLDAP client library only connect to 188.8.131.52? If a connection to 184.108.40.206 fails, will it try 220.127.116.11 and then 18.104.22.168?
Basically we're trying to achieve redundant servers and load balancing using a round-robin-style DNS entry.
