Global index catalogs map entries to a distribution partition. Since global index catalogs are held in memory, replication of global index catalogs is recommended. For information regarding global index replication, see Replication of Global Index Catalogs.
The configuration and management of global indexes and global index catalogs require certain controls to be enabled, particularly the LDAP Pre-Read Control and the CSN Control. For more information, see Supported LDAP Controls in Sun OpenDS Standard Edition 2.2 Architectural Reference.
You can manage global index catalogs using the gicadm command. The gicadm command is available in your installation directory:
for Unix: install-dir/bin/gicadm
for Windows: install-dir\bat\gicadm.bat
For more information, see gicadm in Sun OpenDS Standard Edition 2.2 Command-Line Usage Guide.
The procedures in this section require that the Sun OpenDS Standard Edition proxy is deployed in a distribution architecture.
The procedures in this section presume that you are using the default Sun OpenDS Standard Edition proxy admin port 4444. If you have multiple instances of Sun OpenDS Standard Edition proxy installed on the same host, you need to use a different port for each instance.
