Configuring load balancing using dsconfig - PingDirectory - PingDirectoryProxy - 9.0


PingDirectory 9.0

Create and configure a load-balancing algorithm with dsconfig.

To create and configure a load-balance algorithm:
  1. Run the dsconfig tool.

    When prompted, specify the host name, connection method, port number, and bind distinguished name (DN).

    $ bin/dsconfig
  2. In the Directory Proxy Server main menu, enter the selection for load-balancing algorithms.
  3. To create the Load Balancing Algorithm, in the Load Balancing Algorithm menu, select an option.
    • To use an existing load-balancing algorithm as a template, enter t.
    • To create a new load-balancing algorithm from scratch, enter n.

    In this example, a new Load Balancing Algorithm is created from scratch.

    >>>>Choose how to create the new Load Balancing Algorithm:    
    n) new Load Balancing Algorithm created from scratch 
    t) use an existing Load Balancing Algorithm as a template 
    b) back 
    q) quit                    
    Enter a choice [n]: n
  4. In Select the type of Load Balancing Algorithm menu, select the type of load-balancing algorithm that you want to create.

    Depending on type of algorithm you select, you're guided through a series of configuration properties, such as providing a name and selecting an LDAP external server.

        c)  cancel
        q)  quit
    Enter choice [c]: 3
  5. Review the configuration properties for your new load-balancing algorithm and enter f.
