Six of the planned twelve mail servers in the Far East have been installed and are up and running. The work we put into creating the self- installing CD-ROM has paid off: installation is really painless and can be carried out by the “cleaning lady”. Bandwidth to some locations is really terrible though. I’ve been getting round-trip-times of over 19.000 ms with httping. Never the less, it is sufficient to log on with ssh and perform minimal administration tasks and, more importantly, it is still sufficient to get our LDAP directory replicated out there with OpenLDAP’s delta-syncrepl replication.
