coreyhansen,

You're very nearly correct! Each Event Monitor needs to monitor a
replica of a partition where events of interest take place, and we
strongly recommend two event monitors per replica ring.

The good news is that it's not necessary to install new event monitors.
The Event Monitor configuration utility (nsmevent-config) will let you
specify a LDAP server to monitor for events and the appropriate
authentication method for your environment. As long as they're
monitoring different LDAP servers to get that broader coverage within a
replica ring, you should be set.

If you have any questions about this process, don't hesitate to ask.
