ProcedureTo Configure Client Affinity for Connection-Based Routing

In versions prior to Directory Proxy Server 6.0, one connection was opened between a client and an LDAP server. The same connection was used for all requests from the client until the connection was closed. This type of routing is called connection-based routing. This procedure describes how to configure client affinity for connection-based routing.

You can use DSCC to perform this task. For information, see Directory Service Control Center Interface and the DSCC online help.

Before You Begin

Ensure that all data sources are attached to the data source pool and that client-cred-mode is set to use-client-identity.

  1. Configure the affinity parameters for the data source pool.

    $ dpconf set-ldap-data-source-pool-prop -h host -p port pool-name \
     client-affinity-policy:read-write-affinity-after-any enable-client-affinity:true
