choosing replication strategies
i am new to the OpenLDAP and this is my first post here, so if i missed
out the listing - please, tell me.
i read admin guide, and also got LDAP system administration book
(unfortunately, it is outdated for the replication part)
i am in search of the best replication strategy for the following
scenario: we have 2 geographically distant 'sites' (between two of them
is WAN), and each of these needs to have 2 (or sometimes more) OpenLDAP
servers. if some data is to be changed, it is done only on one 'site'
(our software will redirect client calls to the specific one, based on
our business logic). 'sites' must replicate data between them, and that
should be done via exactly one dedicated OpenLDAP server in each 'site'
(or at least it seems right :) )
Is the N-way multimaster replication best bet, or is it possible to use
some other strategy, like mirroring?
Naturally, servers will contain mostly some personal data which is
rarely changed (but often read)...
