register-ds-admin: Registers Directory Server instances with an Admin Server

NAME

register-ds-admin.pl - Registers Directory Server instances with an Admin Server

SYNOPSIS

register-ds-admin.pl [--options] -- [args]

DESCRIPTION

Registers existing Directory Server instances with an existing Admin Server. This command does the set up necessary for the use of the Console to manage the Directory Server instances you are registering.

Use this command with the --update option after an upgrade to refresh the server information (version, build number, etc.) in the Console.

Can be run in interactive mode with different levels of verbosity, or in silent mode with parameters supplied in a .inf format file or on the command line.

OPTIONS

A summary of options is included below:
--help
This message
--version
Print the version and exit
--debug
Turn on debugging
--silent
Use silent setup - no user input
--file=name
Use the file 'name' in .inf format to supply the default answers
--keepcache
Do not delete the temporary .inf file generated by this program
--logfile
Log setup messages to this file - otherwise, a temp file will be used
--update
Update an existing installation (e.g. after upgrading packages)
--continue
(update only) keep going despite errors (also --force)

For all options, you can also use the short name e.g. -h, -d, etc. For the -d argument, specifying it more than once will increase the debug level e.g. -ddddd

args: You can supply default .inf data in this format:

section.param=value

e.g.

General.FullMachineName=foo.example.com

or

"slapd.Suffix=dc=example, dc=com"

Values passed in this manner will override values in an .inf file given with the -f argument.
