Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 Deployment Planning Guide

Recovery in the Event of Server Failure

If the server or node on which the Directory Server Data Service is running fails, the service is migrated to another working node. No user intervention is required. This service uses a failover resource group, a container that defines the Directory Server instances, and hosts that support the failover requirements.

The following figure illustrates recovery in the event of server failure.
