Specify Several DCs as Namespace ldaps server
« on: 23 Jul 2018 04:36:53 pm »
Hey all,
I work with a rather large company with ldaps servers worldwide. Right now we query the domain name for ldaps but sometimes that send us over to a DC with a bad trip latency (EG from US to Russia, Bulgaria or Singapore). When that happens, actions that would normally take 45 seconds to complete take 45 minutes instead. I know it is possible to set a single server as your ldaps server, but I wonder if we could set multiple servers for a single namespace in case one server would be down or not respond for whatever reason. Though it's not preferred, we are open to introducing additional components if need be. Right now I just have a task set to flush dns every so often, but the new dns are random so there is no guarantee that it will fix the problem or that it won't make it worse. It usually works but sometimes I have to run 5-7 times to get a server that is actually on our continent... Any input would be much obliged! Also, first post so please forgive if I'm leaving out any crucial info.
