Maybe I missed something in the thread. But I understand '"live" LDAP 
server' that you want to know which LDAP server behind connection 
pooling, load-balancer or similar was really reached.

For this particular case I always I add the service FQDN of a particular 
(OpenLDAP) instance to be readable via LDAP, e.g. in the rootDSE. So a 
LDAP client can find out to which particular instance it connected even 
though it does not control the fail-over.

Ciao, Michael.
