Lesson 6. Using Open Directory > Configuring an Open Directory Replica

Configuring an Open Directory Replica

Open Directory enables you to replicate servers—that is, to create and maintain one or more exact copies of your server's LDAP, password, and Kerberos databases. Open Directory also provides automatic load balancing between replicated servers. As a result, you can scale your directory infrastructure and improve search-and-retrieval time on distributed networks. Open Directory replication can also improve client search-and-retrieval time on distributed networks by reducing network traffic between remote sites and ensuring rapid access to directory records, even if the network connection between two locations is lost.
