What is Oracle Internet Directory Replication?
For distributed environments, an administrator
can configure replication. Replication is the process of copying and maintaining the same information
on multiple directory servers. Replication can improve performance by providing more servers
to handle queries and by bringing the data closer to the client. It improves reliability by eliminating
risks associated with a single point of failure.
To achieve a very comprehensive high availability configuration, you can configure
Oracle Internet Directory to run on an Oracle RAC environment. This involves running Oracle Internet
Directory instances and the Oracle Internet Directory-designated database on all the Oracle RAC nodes.
