My database was copied from the existing prod system. I installed a content server, docbase and docbroker pointing to this database.
There was a ldap config object that came with the database. Hence I created only the ldap_xxxx.cnt file matching the obj id of the existing ldap config object.
If I am creating a new ldap config object, where does the docbase owner password go? I only see a field for binding user password.... ?
The password of the repository owner can also be encrypted with dm_encrypt_password, but with different parameters:
dm_encrypt_password -docbase RepoName -rdbms -encrypt PasswordOfRepoOwner
You should look at the Content Server Installation Guide. It contains a chapter "Creating a repository copy to test an upgrade". It has all the necessary information about the steps you have to perform.
I've copied over the database, connected to it etc. The only issue is that the LDAP users are unable to authenticate. (inline users can).
I am deleting the existing LDAP config object and recreating it. But it never asked me for the docbase owner credentials.. only for the binding password.
Where can I find details on creating a new LDAP config object that will generate the ldap_xxxx.cnt file?
you can either copy the ldap_xxxx.cnt from the original content server, or create a new ldap config object, which will in turn generate a new ldap_xxxx.cnt file. You are correct, that when configuring ldap config object repository/installation owner credential isn't required. You need to only provide the binding password for the account that connects to ldap, is all.
I copied the ldap_xxxx.cnt file from the original server but that didnt work.
I then deleted the ldap config obhect and created a new one. Then I created a ldap_xxxx.cnt file based on obj id of this ldap config object. Put in the docbase owner password in plain text in the ldap_xxxx.cnt file. Restarted docbase & app server.
Still not working
1. What else can I try?
2. When does a ldap_xxxx.cnt file get generated after a new ldap config object was created? When the LDAP job runs?
3. What password goes in the ldap_xxxx.cnt file? I was putting in docbase owner password..but this SN talks about putting in binding password..?
