OID 9i (9.2.0.x) Replication Setup; Backup and Recovery; Adding New Node to DRG (Doc ID 250413.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 04, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 9.0.4 to 9.0.4 [Release 10gR1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.



The procedures outlined in the Oracle Internet Directory Admin Guide are quite
clear with regard to setting up replication the first time.  However many times
the OID has been installed and is now populated with hundreds or may be even thousands
of entries and then it is decided to setup replication.  This document provides
additional steps necessary to do this.  Additionally, adding a new node to a DRG
now does not work as documented in the guide due to the later releases of OID 
containing hidden entries with regard to Directory Integration and Provisioning.
Additional steps are necessary in order to clean a new install for the purpose of
bulkloading an ldif file from an existing node in the DRG or an ldif file from a
crashed node when rebuilding.




This procedure has been tested with OID  

*                                                                             *
*  THESE PROCEDURES SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR OID 10.1.X.X.  See note:  300436.1 *
*                                                                             *

It is assumed that the user has a good understanding of OID replication, database and
sqlnet, and the oid command line toolset.

Note:  If you have two fresh OID installations, neither of which have had any entries
beyond the base install, YOU DO NOT NEED TO USE THIS PROCEDURE.

There are Four Different Scenarios Covered:  

Scenario I - Replication Setup When MDS has already been populated with entries.

Scenario II - Adding a New Node to a Replicated Group (DRG)

Scenario III - Recovering/Reloading a Crashed Node in the DRG

Scenario IV -  Migrating OID from a previous release into a Replicated Environment.

Also a Troubleshooting Tips Section Is Listed At The End.
