Quick Start Guide - Setting up OID 10g LDAP Partial Replication (Doc ID 558140.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 30, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.1.2 to 10.1.4 [Release 10gR2 to 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using the Oracle Universal Installer to install replication by selecting High Availability->Replication->LDAP, the installer assumes by default that you wish to replicate the entire directory.   Part of the process deletes everything on the new replica and automatically boostraps from the specified consumer (sponsor) node.  In certain situations you may only want to replicate a portion of the directory, such as, cn=users,dc=mycompnay,dc=com.   This procedure outlines the steps necessary to install an LDAP replica using customized settings.


The detailed documentation for this procedure may be found in:

Oracle Internet Directory Administrator's Guide 10g ( Part Number B15991-01, specifically in chapter 30 - 30.4.4 Installing and Configuring an LDAP-Based Replica with Customized Settings

Note:  Two way LDAP replication is ONLY available at release 10.1.4.  Also, if you are using 10.1.2 then the corresponding procedure is in chapter 20 of the Oracle Internet Directory Administrator's Guide.

If you are unsure, or have questions about this procedure please refer to the detailed documentation.

While this procedure can also be used to setup full directory LDAP replication manually, it is preferable to use the procedure documented in note 300436.1 instead since it does many of these steps automatically.


This note has been verified to work for a one-way ldap based replication configuration where the master was a standalone OID node and the replica was a 2-node OID HA cluster with a RAC DB as backend.  In that scenario choose just one of the two nodes of the HA cluster for the replica and use its physical hostname (not the virtual hostname).
