Edirectory Replicas are copies (Replicas
) of NDS Partitions
on different servers.
There are a few Rules for Edirectory 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.

- A single server can hold replicas of multiple partitions.
