1. Use dsconfig with the create-local-db-vlv-index option and the --index-name, --backend-name, and --set index-type:(propertyValue) options.

    If you do not set any property values, the default values are assigned.

    $ bin/dsconfig create-local-db-vlv-index \ 
      --index-name givenName --backend-name userRoot --set base-dn:dc=example,dc=com \ 
      --set scope:whole-subtree --set filter:"(objectclass=*)" \ 
      --set sort-order:givenName
  2. Rebuild the index using the rebuild-index tool.

    You must add the vlv. prefix to the index name to rebuild the VLV index.

    The following command can be run with the server on or offline with the addition of the --task and connection options.

    $ bin/rebuild-index --baseDN dc=example,dc=com --index vlv.givenName
