Re: Failover Failure Advice
I suggest you'd seriously take a dive into the earlier suggestion I did
When you're worried about to much network traffic (VRRP can make quite
some noise), you can put the two "real" LDAP-servers into a dedicated
VLAN, or use a secundary interface on both LDAP-machines and let 'm talk
to each other over a crosscable.
Suggestion: start with making a well working Mirror mode replication on
If that runs OK, install "some Virtual IP" software en make that work.
For the LDAP-clients there's nothing else to do then make them point to
the Virtual (or floating) IP.
