Round-robin LDAP

Hash: SHA1


I hope this is the right list to post this to, since I have no clue
what is responsible for what we are experiencing. Hope someone can
point me in the right direction.

We have two subnets

Our main LDAP servers run in 192.168.196. and are load-balanced by
round-robin DNS.
The 192.168.196. network is exhausted, so we added a new LDAP slave to
192.168.222. and added the IP address to the round-robin pool.
But it seems that it is only used by other servers in the 192.168.222
network and not by servers in the 192.168.196. network

Further testing seems to prove that LDAP resolving preferes servers in
their own subnet regardless of the DNS round-robin setup.

Can someone confirm this? Or tell me where I should ask this question.
And is there a way around this?

With kind regards,

Dennis Leeuw
