I have been thinking about a scalable multi site deployment architecture for
openldap where I would like to:
- Have a small number of master servers centrally in the enterprise with MMR.
- All account provisioning would be at the central sites.
- Have multiple edge sites replicate of those masters in a star toplogy with MMR.
- Allow writes to those edge sites for the purpososes of slapo_ppolicy,
slapo_lastbind and password changes.
I would like to avoid fully meshing all servers for MMR and would prefer
a star topology where each edge site only replicates with the central site.
I would also like to avoid chaining. See my previous posts why.
Before I set this up in my lab I would like a second opinion. The customer
is asking for best practice in large deployments.
Any comments ?
