Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 Deployment Planning Guide

Logical View of Distributed Data has one subtree for groups and a separate subtree for people. The number of group definitions is small and fairly static, while the number of person entries is large, and continues to grow. therefore requires only the people entries to be distributed across three servers. However, the group definitions, their ACIs, and the ACIs located at the top of the naming context are required to access all entries under the people subtree.

The following illustration provides a logical view of the data distribution requirements.

Figure shows how the ou=people branch must be distributed.
