Synchronizing OpenLDAP Database with Shared Services Repository
The database configured with Shared Services stores product registration information, and the
OpenLDAP database contains provisioning data for Hyperion System 9 products. These
databases work in tandem to support Hyperion System 9 products.
Data inconsistencies between the databases impact normal operations. Inconsistencies could occur during manual database update, database upgrades, or in replicated OpenLDAP environments in which the OpenLDAP slave has taken over for a failed OpenLDAP master. To remove inconsistencies, the OpenLDAP database must be synchronized with Shared Services database. The synchronization process uses the Shared Services database as the master database to resolve data inconsistencies.
Use the OpenLDAP Sync utility in the following situations:
Product registration fails after the application was deleted from Shared Services
Shared Services database is recreated manually without recreating OpenLDAP, and Shared Services backup is not available
OpenLDAP database is recreated manually without recreating Shared Services database, and Shared Services backup is not available
The Sync OpenLDAP utility does not synchronize user and group provisioning data on Hyperion System 9 products.
To synchronize OpenLDAP database with Shared Services repository:
1.Log on to External Authentication Configuration Console as Shared Services Administrator.
2.Select Configuration > Sync OpenLDAP.
3.Optional: Click Refresh to update the status.
4.Optional: Click View Log to display Sync OpenLDAP Logthat details the operations that were performed
during the synchronization process.
