The following is a step by step procedure that defines all the different elements needed to set up a deployment using simple load balancing. The following example describes load balancing with failover on two LDAP servers. For more information on the different types of load balancing available, see Load Balancing Using the Proxy.
The following figure illustrates all the objects that need to be created to configure a Sun OpenDS Standard Edition proxy using a simple load balancing distribution. The objects must be created in the order indicated.
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.
