Separate server from the entire tree, how two ?


Hello,

I have a tree with one eDirectory 8.8.7.2 Linux SLES 11 SP2, and three
eDirectory 8.7.3.10 ftf2 on Windows 2003

I would like to separate eDirectory 8.8.7.2 so it will become
indepandate from the tree, so at laste having two separated trees

What is the best way to acheive that ? any TID's ?

Regards

Re: Separate server from the entire tree, how two ?

Before you do this, what is the purpose of this separation? Do you plan
on having the two trees able to communicate with eachother at all after
this is done? Does the 8.8 SP7 Patch 2 server hold any Master replicas
(of any partitions), and does it at least hold a Read/Write replica of all
partitions, and is it the CA? I assume it was added last, so it's
probably not the CA or anything...

Good luck.

Hello,

The purpose of the separation is to have two independat trees so me and
my collegue will be able to do some operations without impacting each
other

I do not need to keep communication between the trees

Does the 8.8 SP7 Patch 2 server hold R/W repilcas of all partitions, it
is not the CA

Thanks for your help

Regards

This probably isn't the best way to handle this.

It's not a matter of not needing it, it's a matter of having to prevent
it from ever happening.

Hello,

Well, I understand that this may be not possible by some eDirectory
Operations , do you confirm ?

I am sure to be able to do that manually by removing NCPServer objects
and playing with VM Snaphots

Thank you

Regards

Right.

Right. And once you do, these two trees must *never* be allowed to
communicate ever again.

You do not want to separate but remove eDirectory and reinstall...

You will corrupt your tree if the separated servers ever communicate… DO
Not Do This.

Follow the procedure to do a Health Check on the tree.

Follow the steps to "remove edirectory from Linux server" (migrate all
replicas off the server then remove eDir - ndsconfig rm)

Insure your tree is still Healthy (Your three Windows Servers)

Reinstall eDir back on to the Linux Server with a different tree name.
