This use case combines distribution with load balancing. As for all distribution deployments, you can add a global index, however, this is not included here. For information on creating a global index, see Configuring the Global Index in Sun OpenDS Standard Edition 2.2 Administration Guide.
The following figure illustrates all the objects that need to be created to deploy a Sun OpenDS Standard Edition proxy using distribution with load balancing. The objects must be created in the order indicated.
The following example presents a deployment with distribution over two partitions, with each partition load balanced onto two replicated LDAP servers. The distribution algorithm used to partition the data is numeric.
All the commands in this procedure specify the proxy hostname (-h), the proxy admin port (-p), the bind DN for the initial root user (-D) and the proxy password you want to configure (-w). You must also indicate the authentication; if none is indicated and the client and the server are running in the same instance, the local authentication configuration is used.
