Oracle Fusion Middleware Administration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition

ProcedureTo Set A Non-Default Replication Manager

You can use DSCC to perform this task. For information, see Directory Service Control Center Interface and the DSCC online help.

  1. On all consumer (destination) replicated suffixes, create a new replication manager and password.

    $ ldapmodify -a -h host -p port -D cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config -w -
    Enter bind password:
    objectclass: top
    objectclass: person

    For example:

    $ ldapmodify -a -h host1 -p 1389 -D cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config -w -
    Enter bind password:
    objectclass: top
    objectclass: person
  2. On all consumer (destination) replicated suffixes, set the replication manager bind DN.

    $ dsconf set-suffix-prop -h host -p port suffix-DN \

    For example:

    $ dsconf set-suffix-prop -h host1 -p 1389 dc=example,dc=com \
  3. For all replication agreements that you have created on all supplier (source) replicated suffixes, set the replication manager bind DN.

    1. Create a temporary file for setting the new replication manager password.

      This file is read once, and the password is stored for future use.

      $ echo password > password-file
    2. Set the replication manager bind DN and password to be used by the replication mechanism when performing updates.

      $ dsconf set-repl-agmt-prop -h host -p port suffix-DN host:port \
       auth-bind-dn:"cn=new-replication-manager,cn=replication,cn=config" \

      For example:

      $ dsconf set-repl-agmt-prop -h host2 -p 1389 dc=example,dc=com host1:1389 \
       auth-bind-dn:"cn=ReplicationManager3,cn=replication,cn=config" \
    3. Remove the temporary password file.

      $ rm password-file
