Adding an eDirectory server replica
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
One instance of the eDirectory Agent can support one Novell eDirectory master, plus any number of Novell eDirectory replicas running on separate machines.
eDirectory Agent must be able to communicate with each machine running a replica of the directory service. This ensures that the agent gets the latest logon information as quickly as possible, and does not wait for eDirectory replication to occur.
Novell eDirectory replicates the attribute that uniquely identifies logged-on users only every 5 minutes. Despite this replication time lag, eDirectory Agent picks up new logon sessions as soon as a user logs on to any eDirectory replica.
To configure eDirectory Agent installation to communicate with eDirectory:
1.
2.
Enter the Port that eDirectory Agent uses to communicate with the eDirectory machine. The valid values are 389 (default) and 636 (SSL port).
3.
Click OK to return to the eDirectory Agent page. The new entry appears in the eDirectory Replicas list.
4.
5.
Click OK to return to the Settings > User Identification page, then click OK again to cache your changes.
6.
Click Save and Deploy to implement the changes.
7.
