proper way to restore data without replication update.
I have the problem of servers built without time sync. They are running OUD 12csp3.
I am in the process of getting timesync turned on
( this is brackground info - but does not pertain the the question )
question:. I want to be able to restore the data from a backup ( export-ldif ). But I do not want
the replication server to add any changes that occured after the backup. The backup is an
ldif and has all the operational attr included. this is a replicated env and can have anywhere from
2 to 8 servers in replication
so I have tried this and it seems to work. I want confirmation that this is acceptable ( and will not
cause problems down the road ).
I have shutdown all servers
for each server, I have deleted the changelog db files
then did the import-ldif. when I started up the servers. I got no errors
and replication works.
Backup command: oud_home/bin/export-ldif -h $hostname -p $admin_port -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j $pwd_file \
-X --includeBranch $baseDN --backendID $backend_id \
--ldifFile $instance_bkp_dir/master.ldif.$instance > /dev/null
Restore command: $OUD_BASE/bin/import-ldif --includeBranch $suffix --backendID userRoot --ldifFile $file
Delete the replication changelog: /global/site/vendor/Oracle/dirserver/$instance/OUD/changelogDb/*
these have variables and assume that I have the correct values.
