change the location of existing edirectory instance

Hi , 

We have edirectory 9.2 installed in RHEL server. we have edirectory instance in teh default location- /etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/  . we would like to move it to other location . After copying the nds.conf file to new location, providing the new location in the instance.0 file and starting edirectory is enough? 

 

or any other steps are required ?

Regards,

Vidhya.

Hello, here is what the team replied to me:

Not sure why you would only want to move the configuration file and not the database itself.  We do have a TID on doing the latter:

http://support.novell.com/docs/Tids/Solutions/10086928.html

You will also find it here:

https://www.netiq.com/documentation/edirectory-92/edir_install/data/bvl33xn.html

Section 9.0

If you want to run eDir as root - just move everything but the binaries you could backup eDir and NICI, remove eDirectory, re-install it where you want on the filesystem (into a dummy tree) then restore everything.   

The eDirectory admin guide for 9.0 has been updated:

"eDirectory Doesn’t Start After Moving the Datadir to a New Location"

Hope this helps!
