dhcpd.conf and multiple ldap-server

Hello All;

The dhcpd.conf file has a line for ldap-server

ldap-server "172.16.102.5";

Can I just add another ldap server to the list. How can this be done?

Is there a line for alternate-ldap-server?

I haven't found how to add a second/third ldap server in case the first is down.

Any suggestions? Ideas?

Re: dhcpd.conf and multiple ldap-server

I'm not aware of such an option. While you can set multiple "ldap-server" statements the daemon will always enforce the last one it reads (if memory servers me correctly).
As you normally should have a writable replica of the DNS / DHCP objects locally on the box the daemons run you'll most of the time have the local address listed as "ldap-server". And if the local NDS daemon should crash you'll likely don't want to have critical services running there anyway.
Others might know better...

Generally I've gone the route of redundant DCHP servers with their own
ranges, using the option to flip ranges between servers if needed. That
way you have the maximum resiliency.
