Oracle Fusion Middleware Reference for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition

Replication Authentication

Before a master can update a consumer, the consumer authenticates the master by using a special entry called the Replication Manager entry. The master uses the Replication Manager entry to bind to the consumer.

The Replication Manager entry has a special user profile that bypasses all access control rules defined on the consumer server. The special user profile is only valid in the context of replication.

The Replication Manager entry has the following characteristics.

The Replication Manager entry is created by default when you configure replication through the browser-based interfaceDirectory Service Control Center. You can also create your own Replication Manager entry. For information about how to create a Replication Manager entry, see Using a Non-Default Replication Manager in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition.

Authentication can be performed in the following ways for SSL with replication.
