IDM subordinate reference partition from crashed server


We had the server with the IDM partition crash. It was easy enough
getting the crashed server cleared out of eDirectory but we are unable
to add another server to the directory due to the subordinate reference
IDM has to the old server. We tried moving that partition to the server
that now hold the root partition, but we still cannot do anything with
it. Do we need to declare a new epoch for this?

Subordinate Reference partitions are placed automatically by eDirectory
when the server holds a parent partition and not the child. They hold
just the partition root object (and a limited set of attributes of it) in
order to provide pointers for directory traversal.

You don't need to do anything with it.

Please describe exactly what you've done so far.

Please describe exactly what you're trying to do here, and what error or
message you're getting.

That was probably a bad idea. Don't _do_ anything else.

No.
