Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 Migration Guide

ProcedureUsing the checktopics Utility

The checktopics utility is delivered in the migration directory of the Solaris/SPARC and the Windows Identity Synchronization for Windows 6.0 package.

Note –

The prerequisite to run checktopics is a Java Virtual Machine.

When you run the checktopics utility, it connects to the configuration directory, which contains information about Synchronization User Lists (SULs) and current synchronization topic names used in Message Queue. In addition, when you run checktopics, it queries Message Queue to check how many outstanding messages remain on each active synchronization topic and then displays this information for you.

To execute the checktopics command line utility:

  1. Open a Terminal window and cd to the migration directory.

  2. From a command prompt, type the subcommand as follows.

    java -jar checktopics.jar -h hostname \
     -p port -D bind-DN \
     -w bind-password -s root-suffix \
     -q configuration-password -Z

    For example,

    java -jar checktopics.jar -D "cn=directory manager" -w - -s "dc=example,dc=com" -q -Z

    Note –

    For more information about the checktopics arguments, see Common Arguments to the Idsync Subcommands in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 Installation Guide. For more information about using checktopics, see Checking for Undelivered Messages.

    After running checktopics, check your terminal for the following messages:

    • If the operation succeeds, the terminal window displays a message stating that there are no outstanding messages in the logs.

    • If the operation fails, an appropriate error message is displayed with an error identifier.
