Resynchronizing nodes in a cluster

When a node is unable to join a cluster, the information within the node becomes stale and out-of-sync with the other nodes of the cluster. In this circumstance, the node must be brought up-to-date with the cluster before it can participate.

To resynchronize a node in a cluster

  1. Block access at the load balancer.
  2. Execute the dsreplication utility from the command line:
    dsreplication initialize -baseDN "dc=opensso,dc=java,dc=net" -adminUID <admin> -adminPassword <amAdminPassword> -hostSource <fqdnGoodNodeHost> -portSource <ldapPortGoodNode> -hostDestination <fqdnBadNodeHost> -portDestination <ldapPortBadNode> -n
    The dsreplication utility is in the following location:
    • (Microsoft Windows) <installationDirectory>\tomcat\webapps\atriumsso\WEB-INF\config\opends\bat
    • (UNIX ) <installationDirectory>/tomcat/webapps/atriumsso/WEB-INF/config/opends/bin
  3. Select menu option 3.
  4. Stop and start the node.
  5. Restore the load balancer.

    For the command line to work on Windows (and probably on other OSs as well) you need to use double dashes for most parameters:

    dsreplication initialize --baseDN "dc=opensso,dc=java,dc=net" --adminUID <admin> --adminPassword <amAdminPassword> --hostSource <fqdnGoodNodeHost> --portSource <ldapPortGoodNode> --hostDestination <fqdnBadNodeHost> --portDestination <ldapPortBadNode> -n
