I am baffled. So reading the install documentation at
It links to the install guide at redhat.com which indicates to type yum
install redhat-ds. Doing so results in nothing on my centos 6.3
machine. The documentation at centos points to the exact same redhat
document. I did find another document on centos site for 5.x located
here: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/DirectoryServerSetup . It says to
run yum list 389\* . I did so and there were 3 files available for
x86_64. I installed them. Then when I try to run setup-ds-admin.pl,
it's not found. Doing: yum whatprovides */setup-ds-admin.pl it results
in nothing found. Help! Is there another guide somewhere that will
tell me exactly what packages to install?
I have a memory issue with 389-ds 1.2.5 in a CentOS 5.5 64bits 4GB ram.
The server swaps when the server physical memory increase over 75% approx.
When the swap is full the server reaches 100% of physical memory and the SO
kills the ns-ldapd process.
Out of memory: Killed process 30383, UID 99, (ns-slapd).
The cache sizes are:
nsslapd-cachememsize: 125829120 (for each 26 db)
Which can be the problem?
We are planning a Windows synchronization setup, but are being kind of
blocked by the inability to sync attributes other than the hard-coded
list (we need specifically displayName and optionally some of the the
eduPerson schema). Can this be achieved by creating a plugin? Should we
expect problems if we just locate the list in the source, add
displayName and rebuild?

Hi all - thanks for reading!
We're planning a deployment of RHDS in our environment right now. We want to setup multi-mastering, however I'm confused by the "20 masters per replication scenario" limit that's in the Redhat documentation. There doesn't seem to be any explanation around this limit that I can find.
- Each database (with one or more suffix assigned to it) seems to be what is considered as a "server" when it comes to replication scenarios - is that the case?
- Does this mean you are limited to 20 databases marked as Masters, in an instance of directory server?
- Or is it the limit 20 masters of a single database, spread across different instances of DS/machines?
- How is this limit enforced, if it is? This part confuses me, the "limit" seems thrown into the documentation with no context.
We can design the architecture to avoid ever worrying about the 20 database limit, but we're concerned about storing a ton of directory information that is currently located in separate (different vendor) directory servers, all in a single RH/389 DS "database". We might have some naming conflicts as well as policy constraints there as well - so we're just trying to get a handle on the implications of scaling the architecture up.
And how might all this apply different to 389, if at all ?
We had an incident today using the 389-console GUI where our groups were
inadvertently deleted. We are in the process of recreating them (not too
bad, just tedious). I am looking at finding a way to back up our data
periodically so should this happen again, we can restore from backup. I
see online a script called db2ldif.pl. However, I can't find that
anywhere on our installation.
1) We are using 389-ds version 1.2.1 on CentOS 5.7 x64. Where can I get
2) If this is not the best way to do this, what IS the proper way to
backup our data? We are replicating to another server, but once that
groups were gone, that replicated to the other server and now BOTH were
Thanks for any tips!

It there some way to find out when a 389 <-> AD password sync operation fails?
We're seeing issues where passwords are accepted by the side making the
change, but then the other side rejects it. But we don't see any messages in

I'm testing group sync between 389ds and Microsoft AD. It works
otherwise, but incremental updates are not working. Any changes to
groups on 389 side do not get synced to AD unless I do a full manual
update triggered via console. Syncing users works normally. Would
someone have an idea why?
I have setup two directory servers on multi-master replication and would
like to setup them as fail over servers on the client side.
I am using sssd on client side, and I did specify both ldap servers on
/etc/openldap/ldap.conf and /etc/sssd/sssd.conf like below
[root@dsl cacerts]# cat /etc/openldap/ldap.conf
[root@dsl cacerts]# cat /etc/sssd/sssd.conf
ldap_uri = ldaps://ldap02.mam.net, ldaps://ldap.mam.net
I am using Centos 6.3 on both side and yum installed the directory server
from default Centos repo.
