when edirectory and dirxml was introduced at our company a few driversets were created holding each up to 20 drivers, mostly AD and Notes. they connected domains to ous in edir (each connected domain had its own OU it was 'servicing'). integrating new servers included adding replicas for half a day to the server. i now consolidated all into two driversets, drivers working on the whole set of OU's, thus those servers hold all replicas. and all AD-drivers into another driverset (notes drivers are no longer existing ..).

since the initial need to distribute load and not 'harass' drivers with events they are not 'responsible' for is no longer given, why would i stick to replicating OU's - are there other reasons to do that or could i merge anything together and have just one 'replica' - the Tree itself?

thanks in advance,
