How To Configure OID/DIP Synchronization And External Authentication For Failover / High Availability (HA) of the AD Replication Architecture? (Doc ID 881686.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2021

Applies to:

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


There are multiple Active Directory domains in a single forest. There is a virtual host name for point of contact for replicated AD's by a load balancer.
The synchronization profile is configured based on ActiveChgImp which uses USNChanged.

This document describes options for handling failover / high availability of the AD Replication in such situations.

If integrating with synchronizing with a Multiple Domain, please refer the following document.

Administrator's Guide for Oracle Directory Integration Platform 12.2.1
- 19 Connected Directory Integration Concepts and Considerations
-- 19.3.5 Synchronizing with a Multiple-Domain Microsoft Active Directory Environment

Note: Global Catalog (GC) server from AD side cannot be used in this case. Global Catalog server can be used in case of non-replicated AD's with multiple domains.
