Configure the Directory Server in
The PingDirectory Server provides a dsconfig batching mechanism that reads multiple dsconfig invocations from a file and executes them sequentially.
The batch file provides advantages over standard scripting by minimizing LDAP connections and Java virtual machine (JVM) invocations that normally occur with each dsconfig call. Batch mode is the best method to use with setup scripts when moving from a development environment to test environment or from a test environment to a production environment. The --no-prompt option is required with dsconfig in batch mode.
If a dsconfig command has a missing or incorrect argument, the command fails and aborts the batch process without applying any changes to the Directory Server. The dsconfig command supports a --batch-continue-on-error option that instructs dsconfig to apply all changes and skip any errors.
You can view the logs/config-audit.log file to review the
configuration changes made to the Directory Server and use them in the batch
file. The batch file can have blank lines for spacing and lines starting with a pound sign
(#) for comments. The batch file also supports a
\ line continuation
character for long commands that require multiple lines.
The Directory Server also provides a docs/sun-ds-compatibility.dsconfig file for migrations from Oracle to PingDirectory Server machines.
Create a text file that lists each dsconfig command with the
complete set of properties that you want to apply to the Directory Server.
The items in this file should be in the same format as those accepted by the dsconfig command.
The batch file can have blank lines for spacing and lines starting with a pound sign (
#) for comments.
The batch file also supports a "\" line continuation character for long commands that require multiple lines.

- To read and execute the commands, run dsconfig with the --batch-file option.
