Subject Re: ApacheDS "Tools" "dump" question
Date Thu, 29 Sep 2011 14:17:32 GMT
Greetings,

Thanks for your prompt reply and information.

Unfortunately using the Studio export/import is not an option in my application. What I am
actually trying to do is to create a failover mechanism for when a "master" directory fails
and must switch to another LDAP server (perhaps a sloave) that contains the same (or most
of) the data contained in the master.  In the ApacheDS source code, there is some "replication"
code, but it does not seem to do much/anything.  


Do you have any advice on how to implement failover/redundancy?

Thanks in advance.

Steve

Subject: Re: ApacheDS "Tools" "dump" question

the tools project is quite old(broken) and not maintained at the moment
if you want to take a dump would suggest to use Studio's export feature
