The Greytower Project has implemented the Shoal GMS framework (Shoal Home Page
) that enables the connectors to establish and maintain a communication channel to enable connector pairs to communicate and exchanges status and event notification. The clustering communication allows for the failure detection of any of the following components:
- Novell eDirectory
- Novell Identity Manager
- Grey Tower Connector
Automatic Failover and recovery services are managed by designating a node as a primary or secondary node.
