OUD - How To Create and Configure a Dedicated Replication Server / Adding a Dedicated Replication Server Residing on Another Host (Doc ID 2408274.1)

Last updated on APRIL 14, 2022

Applies to:

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


By default, a replication server is configured when a Directory Server is configured for replication. According to the Oracle documentation, a replication topology with 20+ replicas should configure dedicated replication servers using JVMs that are separate from the Directory Servers. However, it is advised to limit the number of replication servers.

Replication Servers

This document goes over the commands used to configure two dedicated replication servers where one of those dedicated replication servers is on another host -

1) Enabling configuration on an OUD Directory Server (Dedicated Directory Server - DS#1 with Dedicated Replication Server RS#1) - Both on the same host (Host #1)
2) Adding a Dedicated Directory Server - DS#2 (Same host as Dedicated DS#1 and Dedicated RS #1 - Host #1)
3) Adding a Dedicated Replication Server (Dedicated RS #2) on a Separate Host (Host #2)
4) Initialization of the Second Dedicated Directory Server (DS #2)

The document also shows how the output of dsreplication status changes with each additional replica and dedicated replication server added to the replication topology.

Example in this Document:
Host #1: One Dedicated Replication Server, Two Dedicated Directory Servers (with no Default Replication Servers configured)
Host #2: One Dedicated Replication Server
