In order to forward the client requests to the remote LDAP server using load balancing feature of the Sun OpenDS Standard Edition proxy, you need the following elements:
a load balancing workflow element.
a load balancing algorithm
a load balancing route, for each remote LDAP server

This topic covers all the administration tasks possible for a load balancing elements once a Sun OpenDS Standard Edition proxy with load balancing is deployed. For information on setting up a deployment with load balancing using the vdp-setup GUI, see To Configure Simple Load Balancing in Sun OpenDS Standard Edition 2.2 Installation Guide.
The following examples describe how to configure load balancing using the dsconfig command.
All the commands in the following procedures specify the proxy hostname (-h), the proxy admin port (-p), the bind DN (-D), and the bind password (-w). The following examples use the -X option to trust all certificates.
