One of the significant features introduced since Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6 (hereafter referred to as "Directory Server 6") is that it allows unlimited master directory servers. This paper describes the benefits of deploying an exclusively multimaster topology instead of a master, consumer, and replication hub directory topology as Directory Server 5.2 customers used to do. While this paper uses Directory Server 6 as example for exclusive multimaster deployments, it is applicable to any later versions including Directory Server 7.0.
