You can use DSCC to perform this task. For information, see Directory Service Control Center Interface and the DSCC online help.

The following commands can be used in scripts that automate the process of initializing a multi-master replica.

  1. Use the insync tool to ensure that the replica has converged with all other masters.

    Replicas are in sync if the delay between modifications on all servers is zero or if the replica has never had any changes to replicate (delay of -1). For more information, see the insync(1) man page.

  2. Begin accepting updates.

    $ dsconf set-suffix-prop -h host -p port suffix-DN repl-accept-client-update-enabled:on

    This command automatically sets the server to read-write mode.
