Lightweight Directory Access Protocol For Replication Of Directory Server Data
Directory Server is a powerful and authoritative enterprise directory infrastructure that is a critical enabler for
enterprise security. The most popular and mostly used protocol for handling directory data is Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol (LDAP) or we can called the alternative to Directory Access Protocol (DAP) protocol is LDAP. LDAP is the
Internet protocol which is used to access directory servers data.
It provides robust and advanced LDAP services using TCP/IP, and the directory is based on a client/server model that can be
exploited from any LDAP-compliant client applications or middleware. Directory data can be stored in DB2 tables for a
highly scalable implementation.
Directory data replication is a key factor to achieve reliability, scalability, availability and fault tolerance in database as it
maintains several clones of data objects. Each of the replica carrying out similar changes automatically if any change made
