After adding and configuring the new external servers, test the communication between the Directory Proxy Server and the LDAP external servers using the include-backend-server-passthrough-subtree-views property of the Directory Proxy Server in combination with an LDAP search. For more information about this option, see Testing External Server Communications on page 190.

  • Run the ldapseasrch command to test communications on the ds-central-01 serverTask.
    root@proxy-east-01: bin/ldapsearch --port 389 --bindDN "cn=directory manager" \
    --bindPassword password \ 
    --baseDN "dc=example,dc=com," \ 
    --searchScope base "(objectclass=*)"    

    You can repeat this search on the ds-central-02 server, to confirm that the server returns the entry as expected.
