I was wondering if it was a correct solution to achieve domain controller high availability by duplicating in real-time
the samba directory (and maybe bind zones also) via DRDB and heartbeat/carp.
Heartbeat will be responsible of transferring IP address and starting a samba controller on the heartbeat slave in case
of failure of the master.
I know that it is also possible to achieve HA mostly out of the box by using open ldap as ldap backend, but is it
possible to upgrade from samba built-in ldap backend to another one without provisioning ? and what about sysvol and
netlogon share in this case ?
