I have been tasked to separate the various Netscape servers onto separate Sun machines. Presently the Messaging (for the mail server), Enterprise (for the web server), and the Directory (for the LDAP server) are all running on the same box. The Web server needs LDAP for the ACLs. For mail, all mail is routed through a "relay" machine listed in the SMTP Routing Table. Relay is set to "search by user ID" and "search using truncated domain (drop host part if local)." I think that themail relay process uses LDAP for the "search by user ID" part. It must be using DNS for resolving the destination server address?
This question is about moving LDAP, the Directory Server.
We have many sites, but each has its own LDAP server. A replication agreement keeps the user entries synchronized. The reference is to ldap.domain.myproj.org, so for the satallite sites a simple DNS change that will make the transition to a new "Master" LDAP server. Then the replication agreements will have to be added.
But moving LDAP to a separate machine and turning off the LDAP process on the web/mail machine I need help with. There is a "Referral Mode" that is used to redirect client applications to another Directory Server while the current server is unavailable: http://enterprise.netscape.com/docs/directory/61/ag/intro.htm
This will do the job but it is intended for a temporary solution and the original LDAP is still running...
Has anyone built an Netscape Server system on mulitple platforms? How can it be done?
