You can force the Directory Proxy Server to prime from the backend directory server only using the --fromDS option, overriding the configuration of the prime-index-source property. You can do this on a one off basis if the global index appears to be growing too large. For example, run the command as follows:

  • Run the reload-index command with the --fromDS option to prime the backend server.
    $ bin/reload-index --bindPassword password --baseDN "dc=example,dc=com" --fromDS
