Support for replication in LDAP directory systems is often one of the key factors in the decision to deploy them. But replication brings design constraints along with its benefits. We discuss some of the factors that should be taken into consideration when designing a replicated directory system. Both programming and architectural/operational concerns are addressed and both single- and multi-master directories are considered.
