ODSEE "repldisc: too many servers specified" Error When Quotes Are Not Used (Doc ID 1536541.1)

Last updated on MAY 17, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version 6.0 to [Release 6.0 to 11gR1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 Running the repldisc command as it is reported in the DSEE/ODSEE documentation ( will give the following error if there is a space in the -D bind user name. For example,

$ repldisc -D cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config -w pwd -b o=rtest -s myserver:1389

This will work fine because there are no gaps or spaces in cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config. However, if a different user is used such as cn=Directory Manager and the user is not bound in quotes we get this error.

$ repldisc -D cn=Directory Manager -w pwd -b o=rtest -s myserver:1389
repldisc: too many servers specified
usage: repldisc [-D binddn] [-w password] [-j file] [-t] [-n] [-a] [-p port]
        [-T timeout] [-J file] [-W keypasswd] [-K keydbpath] [-N certname]
        [-P certdbpath] [-e SSL port] [-b Replica Root] -s|-S <HostSpec>
        HostSpec is: [binddn[:[password]]@]<host>[:port]
