Last updated on SEPTEMBER 06, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version: 11.1.0.6 and later   [Release: 11g and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Scenario #1.  Use this procedure to redesiginate an existing replicated RMS node as the MDS (master node), in OID 10.1.4.3 and later. 


Scenario #2.  Use this procedure when the the MDS (primary) node is completely gone and no recent backups exist.  Since administrative master is gone, remtool fails and DRG cannot be managed or reconfigured.


Note:  These procedures ONLY to ASR replication.  If LDAP replication is being used then the remtool command line option -pchgmaster should be used instead.
