How to move Master Partition in EBA enabled tree?

Jump to solution

Hi,
environment:

  • 2 Servers in Tree (9.1.x and 9.2.x)
  • both Servers are EBA enabled
  • 9.1.x Server hosts EBA CA

I want to remove Server 9.1.x from the tree. So I want to switch the Master Replika from 9.1.x to the 9.2.x Server. This fails as the 9.1.x server holds the EBA CA. How do I move the EBA CA to the 9.2.x Server? The command provided by the documentation only works if the 9.1.x server is not reachable anymore.

So, more generally: How to move the master partition to another server if EBA is enabled?

regards
Daniel

PS: And can we please have some more detailed documentation about EBA? Thanks 🙂

Hi Daniel,

If the master server of the partition is the EBA CA server, one cannot move the master of the partition to another server until the EBA CA role has been moved to the other server. Refer link - https://www.netiq.com/documentation/edirectory-92/edir_admin/data/b1g5rtq6.html

In order to move the EBA CA role to another server, the existing EBA CA server has to be brought down.

On Linux, 'ndsmanage stopall' command can be used to bring down the existing EBA CA server. On windows, stop the dhost process to bring down the existing EBA CA server. Then run the seize_ebaca command respectively. 

It would help us serve better, if you could specify what more information are you looking for in the EBA documentation.

Nethra
