How To Configure An OVD 10g Adapter To Failover To When A Main Adapter (Joined) Fails? (Doc ID 943071.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Virtual Directory - Version 10.1.4.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) 10.1.4.3.0.

An existing "User Join Adapter" is currently joined to a "Main People DB Adapter" which returns a couple of attributes desired, such as mail and mobile. The "User Join Adapter" has the "Main People DB Adapter" as one of the secondary adapters.

How to add/configure a new database (DB) adapter to failover to when the "Main People DB Adapter" fails?

In other words, have those attributes retrieved from the "Main People DB Adapter," but if that adapter fails due to the backend databases being down, would like to retrieve those attributes from another/new DB adapter configured to a non-replicated and entirely different database.

Similarly, would also like to have the same capability for LDAP adapters.
