I am currently using FDS in a test environment, having held off on a migration
from an aging Netscape Directory server to OpenLDAP for the past two
looks like that delay paid off :) FDS has a Java GUI for management (which I
like, because I'm familiar with it) but also all the standard LDAP CLI
well. It has true multi-master support, so a single server doesn't constitute
a single point of failure, like you would have with a master->slave
scenario, where you lost the master server.
You might find the following thread helpful, from a recent discussion
on the FDS
