edir on windows: using dns instead of slp


hi,

i have slp configured in my windows based infrastructure and want to use
dns instead like described in:
https://www.netiq.com/documentation/edir88/edir88/data/amsy6kb.html


i have the following scenario:

eDir
----
treename: MY_TREE
servername: edir_server01,edir_server02,edir_server03
servers are located (from an ldap-viewpoint) below
ou=servers,o=mycompany (eg: cn=server01,ou=servers,o=mycompany)

win
----
the windows-name of the servers are win_server01, win_server02,
win_server03
the windows domain it´s integrated in is: MY_DOMAIN



what i did:
- deactive slpd-service on each of the servers
- set SRV-records in MY_DOMAIN

10.3.43.86 edir_server01.servers.mycompany.MY_TREE.MY_DOMAIN SRV 10 0
524
10.3.43.87 edir_server02.servers.mycompany.MY_TREE.MY_DOMAIN SRV 10 0
524
10.3.43.88 edir_server03.MY_TREE.MY_DOMAIN SRV 10 0 524

it looks as if anything is working alright, but i don´t really
understand how that is working "under the hood". are all three of the
entries correct, or is the reason for the correct functioning other than
those entries?

which one´s of the above entries are correct in regard to my situation,
if all are, which one is better (faster/more efficient)?


thanks in advance, florian
