Re: slapd-meta doesn't continue with multiple uri's

Hi Liam,

IMHO you'd be better off using a hardware/software failover device. There are several free linux based ones that will run on commodity or dedicated hardware.

Then you have complete control of the failover policy. Using a single app server to provide failover for some other app server(s) is like cracking walnuts with a ming vase. It will work until it breaks.

Software like pfSense works at a low level, does ip pooling, and itself can be made redundant.. And run as an appliance on vmware etc.,

Ditto setting up 2 new servers with centos/redhat you get LVS, but is a bit harder to configure unless you are willing to spend the extra time learning how..

The openldap code probably is not ideal the way you are using it, probably because other people in the past have not done failover like you are doing it..
