If you are working with a production Directory Server or a Directory Server that has not been backed up (both the data and the configuration), it is recommended that you do not run the amtune-directory script in CHANGE mode to apply to the tuning changes. Review the tuning recommendations from REVIEW mode and apply the changes manually, if they meet your deployment needs.
Before making the tuning changes, the amtune-directory script stops and backs up Directory Server.
If you are working with a pilot or prototype Directory Server and you are sure you want to apply the tuning changes, follow these steps:
Back up both your Directory Server data and configuration.
Set the following parameter in the amtune-directory script:
# ./amtune-directory dirmanager_password
The dirmanager_password is the Directory Manager password.
The script creates the log file in the same directory with the tuning scripts.
