Sun Java System Identity Synchronization for Windows 6.0 Installation and Configuration Guide

Using importcnf

After installing Core (Chapter 3, Installing Core), use the idsync importcnf subcommand to import your exported Identity Synchronization for Windows version 1.0 or 1.1 (SP1) configuration XML file, which contains Core configuration information.

To import your version 1.0 configuration XML file, open a terminal window (or Command Window) and type the idsync importcnf command as follows:

idsync importcnf [-D bind-DN] -w bind-password | - 
[-h Configuration Directory-hostname] [-p Configuration Directory-port-no] 
[-s rootsuffix] -q configuration_password [-Z] [-P cert-db-path] 
[-m secmod-db-path] -f filename [-n]

For example:

idsync importcnf -w admin_password -q configuration_password -f “MyConfig.cfg”

The following arguments are unique to importcnf:

-f filename

Specifies the name of your configuration XML document. 


Runs in safe mode so you can preview the effects of an operation with no actual changes. 

Note –

For detailed information about other importcnf arguments, review Common Arguments to the Idsync Subcommands.

After importing the version 1.0 configuration XML file, you must run prepds on all Directory Server sources configured for synchronization, (see Using prepds connectors and subcomponents.
