ProcedureTo Configure the Retro Change Log to Record Updates for Specified Suffixes

When the retro change log is enabled on a server, by default it records updates to all suffixes on the server. This procedure describes how to configure the retro change log to record updates to specified suffixes only.

You cannot use DSCC to perform this task. Use the command line, as described in this procedure.

  1. Modify the retro change log configuration entry:

    $ dsconf set-server-prop -h host -p port retro-cl-suffix-dn:suffix-DN

    For example, to log changes only on the cn=Contractors,dc=example,dc=com suffix and the ou=People,dc=example,dc=com suffix, use this command:

    $ dsconf set-server-prop -h host2 -p 1389 \
     retro-cl-suffix-dn:"cn=Contractors,dc=example,dc=com" \

    To add a suffix to an existing list of specified suffixes, use this command:

    $ dsconf set-server-prop -h host -p port retro-cl-suffix-dn+:suffix-DN
  2. Restart the server.
