Re: [Linux-cluster] LDAP as a service



Good Afternoon,

There are a couple of reasons to implement LDAP on a cluster.  
1. I have a cluster with GFS partitions available.
2. Want to avoid the cost putting up 2 more machines for master  -
master LDAP operation.
3. Want to avoid the timeout the client experiences when the primary is
unavailable.
 
My thought is to have the LADP data stored on a GFS partition while the
LDAP server process and IP address are managed as a service.  In this
configuration the process can move between nodes with no impact to the
clients. 

Thanks
Tom

Why do you want to configure LDAP server on cluster ? Most of the ldap
clients (nss_ldap, SSSD) can talk to multiple LDAP server & can failover
when primary is down.
