Description Rich Megginson 2012-05-03 15:46:01 EDT

and in fedora 15

7.3.4. Changing the Synchronized Windows Subtree

fedora 16 has a different place


8.4.4. Changing the Synchronized Windows Subtree

This is incorrect:
dn: cn=ipa-winsync,cn=plugins,cn=config

This is what it should say:

First, find the DN of your windows sync agreement:

 ldapsearch -xLLL -D "cn=directory manager" -w password -p 389 -h ipaserver.example.com -b cn=config objectclass=nsdswindowsreplicationagreement dn nsds7WindowsReplicaSubtree

 dn: cn=meToWindowsBox.example.com,cn=replica,cn=dc\3Dexample\2Cdc\3Dco
  m,cn=mapping tree,cn=config
 nsds7WindowsReplicaSubtree: cn=users,dc=example,dc=com

Next, with that dn: line, use ldapmodify:

 ldapmodify -x -D "cn=directory manager" -w password -p 389 -h ipaserver.example.com <<EOF
 dn: cn=meToWindowsBox.example.com,cn=replica,cn=dc\3Dexample\2Cdc\3Dco
  m,cn=mapping tree,cn=config
 changetype: modify
 replace: nsds7WindowsReplicaSubtree
 nsds7WindowsReplicaSubtree: cn=alternateusers,dc=example,dc=com

 modifying entry "cn=meToWindowsBox.example.com,cn=replica,cn=dc\3Dexample\2Cdc\3Dcom,cn=mapping tree,cn=config"

The change should take effect immediately, or as soon as the current sync operation is completed.

Updated procedure in the RHEL 6 docs:


Fedora is identical, but changes will be published later.
