Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Troubleshooting Guide

Using the nsds50ruv and ds6ruv Attributes to Troubleshoot Replication Problems

In 6.0 and later versions of Directory Server, you can also use the nsds50ruv attribute to see the internal state of the consumer, as described in the previous section. If you are using the replication priority feature, you can use the ds6ruv attribute, which contains information about the priority operations. When replication priority is configured, you create replication rules to specify that certain changes, such as updating the user password, are replicated with high priority, For example, the RUV appears as follows:

# ldapsearch -h host1 -p 1389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w secret \
-b "cn=replica"

nsds50ruv: {replicageneration} 4405697d000000010000
nsds50ruv: {replica 2 ldap://server1:2389}
nsds50ruv: {replica 1 ldap://server1:1390} 440569aa000000010000 44056a23000200010000
ds6ruv: {PRIO 2 ldap://server1:2389}
ds6ruv: {PRIO 1 ldap://server1:1390} 440569b6000100010000 44056a30000800010000
