OUD11g - OUD Instance Unable to Replicate After Merging Replication Groups (Doc ID 2135259.1)

Last updated on JULY 26, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version 11.1.2.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Merged OUD replication groups left out one server, unable to replicate again.

Have two identical installations with two replicated OUD instances in each (2 OUD in each datacenter).

Following this documentation

29.2.6 To Merge Two Existing Replicated Topologies

Using this command:

$/oud/bin/dsreplication enable --host1 host01 --port1 4444 --bindDN1 "cn=oudadmin" --bindPasswordFile1 ~/oud-password.txt --replicationPort1 8989 --host2 host04 --port2 4444 --bindDN2 "cn=oudadmin" --bindPasswordFile2 ~/oud-password.txt --replicationPort2 8989 --adminUID oudmanager --adminPasswordFile ~/oud-password.txt --baseDN "dc=iamext,dc=bngf,dc=local" -X -n


The server used in the command (host04) above is replicated with the the OUD in the other datacenter (host01 and host02). Changes are replicated and get-replication-domain-prop with provider-name "Multimaster Synchronization" gives this:

./dsconfig -h host04 -p 4444 -D "cn=oudadmin" -j ~/oud-password.txt --trustAll -n get-replication-domain-prop --provider-name "Multimaster Synchronization" --property replication-server --domain-name "dc=example,dc=com,dc=local"
Property : Value(s)
-------------------:-----------------------------------------------------------
replication-server : host01:8989,
  : host02:8989,
  : host03:8989,
  : host04:8989

But host03 does not show the same output and it is not replicated with the other 3

Property : Value(s)
replication-server : host03:8989,
  : host04:8989


Trying to run dsreplication enable again with host03, observing this error

The following base DN's are already replicated between the two servers:
dc=example,dc=com,dc=local
