The following procedure uses the
resync tool to populate an empty
Sync Destination topology for small datasets. For large deployments, use the
In this example, assume that the Sync Destination topology has only the base entry
dc=example,dc=com) and the
entry. Perform the following steps to populate an empty Sync Destination:

logs/resync-failed-DNs.logfile in a text editor to locate the error and fix it. An entry cannot be created because the parent entry does not exist.
# Entry '(see below)' was dropped because there was a failure at the resource: Failed to create entry uid=mlott,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com.
