LDAP registry location - can we have two of them ?


Peter Turvey (99234) | asked Sep 27 '18, 4:47 a.m.

We are using version 6.0.2 of the CLM applications. And Tomcat is version 7.0.59.

At the moment the "Server / Advance Properties" has
LDAP Registry Location = ldap://DC1:3268

I would like to add a second LDAP Registry location in case our DC1 is ever unavailable.

Is this as simple as editing the location to be
LDAP Registry Location = ldap://DC1:3268, ldap:DC2:3268           

Thanks   Peter

 Not directly in RTC. Even if it were available, a better solution is an HA type LDAP, where users it a virtual IP rather than the actual IP. I would imagine you have other products that need LDAP access, and as such are just as vulnerable to an outage. In such a situation, you should refactor your LDAP architecture to account for high availability:

Thanks for that, I will discuss with the other network Sys Admins.

Update:

I added the second Domain Controller using the Jazz Team Server's "Configuration / Advanced Properties" page.
So I now have :
 LDAP Registry Location = ldap://DC1:3268, ldap:DC2:3268

This new setting was saved successfully but it didn't seem to do anything useful.

i.e. when I shutdown DC1 I was hoping the rtc users would still be able to log on (using DC2 as the LDAP registry location).

But they couldn't.
