The following example illustrates how to run the prepare-external-server tool to prepare a Directory Server.
In this example, the server is configured on the remote host ds-east-01.example.com, listening on port 1636.
The Directory Server is being accessed by a Directory Server that uses the default user account
cn=Proxy User,cn=Root DNs,cn=config. Because a password to the trust
store is not provided, the trust store defined in the
--proxyTrustStorePath is referenced in a read-only manner.
To prepare the Directory Server, use the
$ ./PingDirectory/bin/prepare-external-server \ --baseDN dc=example,dc=com --proxyBindPassword password \ --hostname ds-east-01.example.com \ --useSSL \ --port 1636 --proxyTrustStorePath /full/path/to/trust/store \ --proxyTrustStorePassword secret
Follow the prompts to set up the external server.
