This section describes how to configure a data view that routes requests targeted at a list of subtrees to a set of data-equivalent data sources. For information about this type of deployment, see Data Views to Route Requests When a List of Subtrees Are Stored on Multiple, Data-Equivalent Data Sources in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Reference.
The example in this section has multiple data sources that contain the same set of subtrees. The data sources are data-equivalent and are pooled into one data source pool for load balancing. A data view is configured for each subtree to expose that subtree to client requests. The following figure shows the sample deployment.
You can use DSCC to perform this task. For information, see Directory Service Control Center Interface and the DSCC online help.
Create a data source for each LDAP server as described in Creating and Configuring LDAP Data Sources.
Create a data source pool as described in Creating and Configuring LDAP Data Source Pools.
Attach the data sources to the data source pool as described in Attaching LDAP Data Sources to a Data Source Pool.
(Optional) Configure load balancing.
For information, see Configuring Load Balancing.
Create a data view with a base DN at dc=example1,dc=com that refers to the data source pool.
$ dpconf create-ldap-data-view -h host1 -p 1389 dataview-1 \ data-source-pool-1 dc=example1,dc=com
Create another data view with a base DN at dc=example2,dc=com that refers to the data source pool.
$ dpconf create-ldap-data-view -h host1 -p 1389 dataview-2 \ data-source-pool-1 dc=example2,dc=com
The other properties of the data views are the same as the default data view in Default Data View.
If necessary, restart the instance of Directory Proxy Server for the changes to take effect.
For information about restarting Directory Proxy Server, see To Restart Directory Proxy Server.
