NameServer features

You can use OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer to configure both local NameServer instances and remote NameServer instances. The NameServer installation provides one sample NameServer (NS1), and you can use the sample as a template for creating and configuring additional NameServers.
In its role as a connection arbitrator, the NameServer provides location transparency, connection-level fault tolerance, server-level fault tolerance, and optional load balancing. For details about these features, see Configuring fault tolerance and load balancing.
