(Doc ID 2052686.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 29, 2015

Applies to:

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


Multiple hosts each have a database with same database/sid name defined with a requirement to register the same name into the OUD directory service.

Example attempting to register a database with OUD using dbca:

oracle@host1 orcl > export DB=orcl
oracle@host1 orcl > export SID=orcl
oracle@host1 orcl > export PORT=1521
oracle@host1 orcl > export HOSTNAME=host1.example.corp
oracle@host1 orcl > export DIRMGR="cn=Directory\20Manager"
oracle@host1 orcl > export PASSWORD=********
oracle@host1 orcl > export WALLETPWD=********
oracle@host1 orcl > dbca -silent -configureDatabase -sourceDB ${DB} -registerWithDirService true -dirServiceUserName "${DIRMGR}" -dirServicePassword ${PASSWORD} -walletPassword ${WALLETPWD}
Database already registered with Directory Service.
oracle@host1 orcl >
