Updating password in slave ldap server
I have 2 LDAP
Servers (1 master and 1 slave) and I synchronize bdb database by slurp daemon.
So, when somebody needs to update his/her password or other information,
everything is done in master server and then slave server receives this updates.
This 2 servers are in the same physical place.
Now I am planning to
put another LDAP slave in other geographical place (far from this 2
servers) and because of that I am planning to put some slave server receiving
all updates from master server, but in all ldap client machines in this new
location I would like to configure this new slave server (Slave server 2) as URI
host in ldap.conf files. I mean
Location 1: Master
server 1 and slave server 1
Location 2: Slave
Is there any way to
1. ldap client
machines in location 2 to authenticate using Slave server 2
2. when client
machines needs to change some ldap information (like password or personal
information), to force this update to occurs in slave server 2 and then master
server 1 receives this uodate ?
Do I have to use 2
Master servers (1 in each location) ? If yes, can I synchronize both BDB
databases ? How ? Any other suggestions ?
