OUD - How To Initialize Replica(s) (Doc ID 2166392.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 15, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

 This document covers how to import data / initialize replica(s) for these scenarios -
- Initialize All Servers in the Replication Topology
- Initialize Only One Server or a Subset of Servers in the Replication Topology
- Appending Data to Data That Already Exists in a Replica (Using import-ldif)

Note1: When initializing, keep in mind that encrypted attributes should be configured in the destination replica(s) prior to initialization, like in the source replica. When the attribute encryption configuration is the same in destination replica as the source replica, there is no need to decrypt the LDIF when exporting since the encryption keys are stored in cn=admin data.
Reference: Configuring Attribute Encryption in Replication Enabled Topology

Note2: To speed up import-ldif on Linux -
1) An offline import-ldif is faster than an online import-ldif or running 'dsreplication initialize'.
2) The offline or online import-ldif JVM parameters can be configured in OUD java.properties to improve initialization performance.
