Directory Replication Between Sites on Different Networks
You can share directory information between two sites that do not have LAN connectivity. Before doing so, make sure that:
- A messaging connection exists between the two sites so that replication messages can be exchanged. This can be accomplished with a connector (such as an X.400 Connector or Internet Mail Service) that supports message transfer between remote sites. Verify that an entry for the remote site has been added to the Connected Sites property page.
- You know the name of the remote site server that will be in charge of processing and responding to requests for updated directory information (the bridgehead server).
Setting Up Directory Replication Between Sites on Different Networks
To set up directory replication between sites that do not have LAN connectivity, you need to:
- Create a directory replication connector in each site. Because the sites do not have LAN connectivity, you must manually create and configure both directory replication connectors separately.
- Indicate the server in both the local and remote sites that are in charge of processing and responding to requests for updated directory information (the bridgehead server).
- Establish a schedule for updating directory information.
Note After the directory replication connector is established in the first site, you must manually create and configure a directory replication connector on the bridgehead server in the remote site.
- In the Administrator window, choose Directory Replication.
- From the File menu, choose New Other, and then choose Directory Replication Connector.
- In the Remote site name box, select the name of the remote site.
- In the Server in remote site box, type the name of the server in the remote site that will process requests for updated directory information.
- Select No, the remote site is not available on this network.
- Choose OK to display the Directory Replication Connector property pages where you will complete the configuration process and create the directory replication connector.
