8.3 Guidelines for VLDB Services

The VLDB service is configured when you create the DFS management context. At least one instance of the VLDB service for a DFS management context must be running in order use DFS junctions and tasks for volumes in that context. You can define one or two replica sites to host instances of the VLDB service.

The VLDB service tracks only those volumes in the DFS management context that have Volume objects in Novell eDirectory™.

For information about monitoring the VLDB service, see Section 9.0, Managing VLDB Services.
