Goal

This document provides an example of setting up a load balancer for an active-active Oracle Identity Management 10g installation. As many people have experience load balancing web servers but not LDAP servers, this document will focus primarily on the Oracle Internet Directory (OID) load balancing configuration.

The example is specific to F5's BigIP. Please note that this example is provided to assist with  the theory and practicality of setting up a load balancer. It does not override Oracle's support policy on load balancers, which is documented at:

Oracle Application Server 10g (10.1.2, 10.1.3)
Tested Load Balancers, Firewalls and Stand-Alone SSL Accelerators

and accessible via <Note 454565.1> How to Find Information on Load Balancers, Firewalls and Stand-Alone SSL Accelerators Tested for OracleAS 10g
