Multiple local DB backends

When you set up the Directory Server instances, you need two backends, a global backend for globally replicated data, such as userRoot, and a backend for the balancing point base distinguished name (DN), such as dataSet.

Both backends must be enabled for replication and initialized separately.

Replication set name

Every Directory Server in your replicated topology must have a replication set name. This replication set name coordinates the Directory Proxy Server and the Directory Server.

The restricted domain is only replicated within instances using the same replication set name.

Multiple Directory Proxy Server subtree views

The entry-balanced proxy configuration relies on multiple subtree views, one for the globally replicated base DN and one for the entry-balancing point base DN. The globally replicated base DN has a proxying request processor associated with it. The restricted base DN has an entry-balancing request processor associated with it.


Configure the subtree views after running your setup using the create-initial-proxy-config tool.
