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

Using resetconn

You can use the resetconn subcommand to reset connector states in the configuration directory to uninstalled. For example, if a hardware failure prevents you from uninstalling a connector, use resetconn to change the connector’s status to uninstalled so you can reinstall that connector.

Note –

The resetconn subcommand is intended to be used only in the event of hardware or uninstaller failures.

To reset the state of connectors from the command line, open a terminal window (or a Command Window) and type the idsync resetconn command as follows:

idsync resetconn [-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] -e directory-source-name [-n]

For example:

idsync resetconn -w admin password -q configuration_password -e “dc=example,dc=com“

Using prepds describes the arguments that are unique to resetconn:

Table A–7 idsync resetconn Arguments



-e dir-source

Specifies the name of the directory source to reset. 


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

Note –

idsync printstat can be used to find directory source names.
