Most configuration changes to Directory Proxy Server and its entities can be made online. Certain changes require that the server be restarted before the changes take effect. If you make configuration changes to any properties in the following list, the server must be restarted:
aci-data-view bind-dn client-cred-mode custom-distribution-algorithm db-name db-pwd db-url db-user distribution-algorithm ldap-address ldap-port ldaps-port listen-address listen-port load-balancing-algorithm num-bind-init num-read-init num-write-init number-of-search-threads number-of-threads number-of-worker-threads ssl-policy use-external-schema
If a property has an rws (read, write, static) keyword, the server must be restarted when the property is changed.
If a property has an rwd (read, write, dynamic) keyword, modifications to the property are implemented dynamically (without restarting the server).
To determine whether a change to a property requires the server to be restarted, run the following command:
$ dpconf help-properties | grep property-name
For example, to determine whether changing the bind DN of an LDAP data source requires the server to be restarted, run the following command:
$ dpconf help-properties | grep bind-dn connection-handler bind-dn-filters rwd STRING | any This property specifies a set of regular expressions. The bind DN of a client must match at least one regular expression in order for the connection to be accepted by the connection handler. (Default: any) ldap-data-source bind-dn rws DN | "" This property specifies the DN to use when binding to the LDAP data source. (Default: undefined)
To determine whether the server must be restarted following a configuration change, run the following command:
$ dpconf get-server-prop -h host -p port is-restart-required
