If you have an F5, or other load balancer, it's pretty easy to create a VIP
with multiple back end nodes (your LDAP servers). Obviously not a cheap
solution, but you can setup monitors which can detect when a server has
gone down, and immediately pull it from the pool. It's been very effective

You can use a few different methods on top of multi-master.
HAproxy server (or other load balancer). This service listens for

Multiple records in DNS. see below
Split Horizon DNS. google that one
Although some would advise against it, we use DNS to take care of
this. Just make multiple entries:
point users to ldap.example.com
. if ldap1.example.com
dies, users will
alternate hitting the dead and alive servers, ending in successful
I get alerts if the server is down so I yank it from DNS quickly.
difference between this and HAproxy is that haproxy will automatically
remove the bad entries, but adds another point of failure so it's a
wash to me.
