Edirectory Replicas are copies of NDS Partitions on different servers.

Rules for Replicas#

There are a few Rules for Replicas:
  • Each server can store more than 65,000 eDirectory replicas; however, only one replica of the same user-defined partition can exist on the same server.
  • Novell recommends that you keep three replicas for fault tolerance of eDirectory (assuming you have three eDirectory servers to store them on).
  • A single server can hold replicas of multiple partitions.
