>                 URL:
>             Project: Directory ApacheDS
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 1.5.7
>            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 2.1.0
> Atm, we just support 'smart' referrals (ie, referrals handled in entries), we don't support
DSA referrals (or suffix referrals).
> This is a must have : we should be able to redirect all request to another server if
the requested DN does not exist in the local DIT, or we should be able to do the same thing
if the current server is in maintenance mode.
> This kind of referral must be configured globally, and handled globally. We can add a
referral with each suffix, plus a global one. 
> For instance, a global referral can be set this way :
>   <defaultDirectoryService id="directoryService" instanceId="default"
>                            referral="ldap://remote.server:389"
>                            referralActivated="false"
>                            ...
> so that if we change the flag to TRUE, any request will be redirected to the remote server.
> For the suffix referral, we can do that :
>       <jdbmPartition id="example" 
>                                  suffix="dc=example,dc=com"
>                                  referral="ldap://"...>
> then any request done on dc=example,dc=com will be redirected on the server.
