The Directory Proxy Server provides a tool, reload-index, which allows you to manually reload the Directory Proxy Server global indexes. You might need to reload the index when:
  • The Directory Proxy 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.

You can use the tool to reload all configured indexes in the global index, including the RDN index and all attribute indexes, or to reload only those indexes you specify.

The tool schedules an operation to run within the Directory Proxy Server’s process. You must supply LDAP connection information so that the tool can communicate with the server through its task interface. Tasks can be scheduled to run immediately or at a later scheduled time. Once scheduled, you can manage the tasks using the manage-tasks tool.
