Configure a single listener-address for the replication server to change the default setting of listening on all addresses.
By default, the replication server binds the listening ports to all available interfaces
of the machine. To bind the listener to a specific address, change the address to the
host name provided when replication is enabled and set the
listen-on-all-addresses property to
The replication server’s configuration entry stores a host name for itself so that it
can resolve the address and specify it during the socket bind. If the server information
is missing from the system, an error message generates with instructions on specific
address binding. You can use the dsconfig tool to change the value of
listen-on-all-addresses property from
To configure a replication server to listen on a single address:
- Create a new directory server instance and enable replication on port 8989.
To see the ports bound for listening on port 8989, run
A port of
*.8989means that it is listening on all addresses.
$ netstat -an | grep LISTEN | grep 8989
To disable listening on all addresses for the replication server, run the
$ bin/dsconfig set-replication-server-prop \ --provider-name "Multimaster Synchronization" \ --set listen-on-all-addresses:false
To see the ports bound for listening on port 8989, run netstat
A port of
<address>.8989, such as 10.8.1.211.8989, means that it is listening on the one address.
