RE: Syncrepl Questions

I donât think MirrorMode is available in 2.3. Here is my setup below. What am I missing? I had to download the overlays from the beta channels just to get ppolicy. My goal is to provide a mechanism for authentication users and have a redundancy in case I love the provider. I may be trying to over analyze this configuration but the documents are a little confusing.

1. Configured a single LDAP server
2. Configured syncrepl on the provider
3. Configured a single consumer "refreshonly"
4. I have several applications and client connecting to the provider. Each application and client only point to the provider.
	. Squid
	. Samba
	. Dovecot
	. End Users authenticating through gdm

Thanks Again

This is called Active-Active Hot Standby and can be done with MirrorMode.

It can be, depends how you've set it up, which you have told us ;-)

It depends on what your clients are doing, if it's all readonly, then point
them at both. Tell us more.
