You can create multiple local database backends, each containing one or more different base distinguished names (DNs).
There should be at most one replicating domain on each local database backend. The
replication domain should not span multiple local database backends. The typical
entry-balancing configuration involves two local database backends: one to serve the global
domain data that resides above the entry-balancing point and another that is defined with
the entry-balancing point as the base DN, such as
With multiple local database backends configured, the data existing with each backend can be managed independently. In addition, separate index settings are applied to each local database backend.
When creating multiple database backends, consider the following:
- No two backends can have the same base DN.
- If any base DN for a given backend is subordinate to a base DN on another backend, then all base DNs on that backend must be subordinate to the base DN of the other backend.
- The total of all db-cache-percent values should be no more than 65-70% in most cases and should never exceed 100%.
