A DNS based load balancer should be enough for you.
Use DNS round-robin scheme. In this scheme, set up something
similar to the following (make suitable changes in IP and FQDN)
in your DNS' zone file:
ldap.my.tld. IN A 10.1.1.1
ldap.my.tld. IN A 10.1.1.2
Once it is done, use ldap.my.tld wherever you need to give the
host name/IP of ldap server. Your DNS will ensure that the IPs
are rotated properly while serving the query for ldap.my.tld.
You can read more on DNS based load balancing in following links.
In a load balanced scenario, it would be better to set up a master
LDAP server (say, on 10.1.1.1) and another one (on 10.1.1.2) in
slave mode. You need to send all updates to master server and the
slave will have everything replicated automatically. See the following
link for openldap.

Not sure if this suffices your needs - you can do basic load balancing
with Bind round robin resolution.

I have one email server, and 1 LDAP server for authentication.
In my case all users should go to LDAP for authentication. For decreasing
load on one LDAP server I want to share load on 2 LDAP servers instead of 1.
For this I am planning to put one Load Balancer for 2 LDAP servers.
So for authentication qmail will send request to Load Balanced IP and then
LB will decide where to send the request.
For this instead of buying LB I want to put Linux box and setup Load
Balancer on that. Is it possible? If yes then how can I do that ?
LINUX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to
understand the simplicity

I recently(yesterday) installed Gentoo 2007 from a CD I obtained from Mehul
Problems that dogged me:
1]The Live CD could not boot the ATi Radeon XPress 200(RC410) integrated
card on my Intel D101GGC motherboard.
2]I ran the text mode(pseudo-GUI?) installer and refused to install the
Gentoo Grub opting instead to add the relevant entries to my Ubuntu
7.04/boot/grub/menu.lst.So,I added the following for Gentoo:
title Gentoo 2007
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.19-gentoo-r5 root=/dev/hda9
wherein my Gentoo / is partition number 9(hda9)So everything went fine till
I tried to boot my Gentoo install.Kernel was recognized and starts
booting,but during booting an error message pops up saying
>>Booting (initramfs)..switch_root: "Bad init('/sbin/init)
Kernel panic-not syncing-attempted to kill init!
and the machine hangs there with the Caps Lock and Scroll Lock LEDs blinking
furiously.I have to press the Reset button to regain control.I tried a
Google search and all I got was a topic on a development release of a
VM.Cansomeone help me with this error?
In 2005, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) issued a
circular to stock exchanges directing them to get affidavits from
brokers / sub-brokers operating trading terminals, targeting use of
unauthorised software. The link to the circular is here:
Read the first clause of the affidavit format. The requirement that
SEBI's prior approval be sought before modifying any part of the
terminal software is directly in conflict with terms of FOSS licenses
like the GPL.
This may have a bearing on the use of open technologies on trading
platforms. Can any of the enlightened comment on what can be done to
level the playing field for FOSS? Have any of the developers come
across emphasis on use of closed technologies for compliance with SEBI
Its good to see you all sharing ideas and contributing towards the
open source revolution.Well, I got introduced to linux only a month
ago by one of my coworkers, and I must admit that I found it a bit
difficult to grasp at first.As I am starting to get used to it I am
finding it more productive as compared to Windows and getting more
excited about it I recently bought an eeePC, Its a marvellous
combination of mobility and productivity, what more would you want in
Since I am really new to Linux, I would really appreciate if you'll
could help me improving my linux skills.Could you please suggest me on
whats the best way of learning Linux in your opinion ? I mean do you
learn by yourself by means of trail and Error or Its worth attending
some professional Linux Training ?
Also does anyone know of Good Linux training Institutes in Vashi ? is
anyone here from around Vashi area ?
