Last updated on APRIL 07, 2021

Applies to:

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


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 <HOST-01> --port1 <ADMIN_PORT> --bindDN1 "cn=<OUD_ADMIN>" --bindPasswordFile1 ~/<OUD_PWD.TXT> --replicationPort1 <REPL_PORT> --host2 <HOST-04> --port2 <ADMIN_PORT> --bindDN2 "cn=<OUD_ADMIN>" --bindPasswordFile2 ~/<OUD_PWD.TXT> --replicationPort2 <REPL_PORT> --adminUID <OUD_MGR> --adminPasswordFile ~/<OUD_PWD.TXT> --baseDN "dc=<SUFFIX_DN>" -X -n

The server used in the command (<HOST-04>) above is replicated with the the OUD in the other datacenter (<HOST-01> and <HOST-02>). Changes are replicated and get-replication-domain-prop with provider-name "Multimaster Synchronization" gives this:

./dsconfig -h <HOST-04> -p <ADMIN_PORT> -D "cn=<OUD_ADMIN>" -j ~/<OUD_PWD.TXT> --trustAll -n get-replication-domain-prop --provider-name "Multimaster Synchronization" --property replication-server --domain-name "dc=<SUFFIX_DN-1>"
Property : Value(s)
replication-server : <HOST-01>:<REPL_PORT>,
  : <HOST-02>:<REPL_PORT>,
  : <HOST-03>:<REPL_PORT>,
  : <HOST-04>:<REPL_PORT>

But <HOST-03> does not show the same output and it is not replicated with the other 3

Property : Value(s)
replication-server : <HOST-03>:<REPL_PORT>,
  : <HOST-04>:<REPL_PORT>

Trying to run dsreplication enable again with <HOST-03>, observing this error

The following base DN's are already replicated between the two servers:
