change the location of existing edirectory instance
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 ?
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:
You will also find it here:
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!
