OUD11g: Can the Temporary Directory Location (Used for Replica Initialization by Running 'dsreplication initialize') Be Modified?

(Doc ID 2014527.1)

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When the 'dsreplication initialize' command is executed, the <instance-dir>/import-tmp directory
of the destination OUD instance is used as a temporary working directory.

If the OUD DB size is huge, you may run out of disk space where the destination instance exists
and there's no option to specify a temporary directory like when using the 'import-ldif' command with the --tmpDirectory option.

For more information about import-ldif and the --tmpDirectory option -

A.3.6 import-ldif - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E29407_01/admin.111200/e22648/appendix_cli.htm#solIMPORT-LDIF

Is there any way to change the temporary directory that is used to initialize a replica when running the dsreplication initialize command?
