Use the reload-index tool to reload all configured indexes in the global index, including the relative distinguished name (RDN) index and all attribute indexes or to reload only the indexes you specify.

You might need to reload the index when:

  • The PingDirectoryProxy server fails to successfully load its global indexes on startup.
  • Changes are made to the set of indexed attributes.
  • Significant changes are made to the content in backend servers.
  • The integrity of the index is in question.

The reload-index tool schedules an operation to run within the PingDirectoryProxy server’s process. You must supply the LDAP connection information so that the tool can communicate with the server through its task interface. You can schedule tasks to run immediately or at a later time. After the tasks are scheduled, manage them using the manage-tasks tool.
