Added a tool to identify obsolete replication domains

PingDirectory
NewDS-47373
Added the check-replication-domains tool, which you can run to check the current list of known replication domains in changelogDb and find any obsolete domains present. The tool defaults to the server's root directory.

Improved timeouts for replication operations

PingDirectory, PingDirectoryProxy, PingDataSync
ImprovedDS-47144
Improved various timeouts for dsreplication enable and remove-defunct-server operations to enable them to scale with the size of the topology. Smaller-sized topologies shouldn't be impacted by these changes.

Increased timeouts for mirrored subtree operations

PingDirectory
ImprovedDS-46597
Increased timeouts for mirrored subtree operations to provide better support for large or distributed topologies.

Improved dsreplication performance for large or high-latency topologies

PingDirectory
ImprovedDS-47083, DS-47084
Improved the performance of dsreplication commands in topologies with a large number of PingDirectory servers or high network latency.

Improved the response time of dsreplication

PingDirectory
ImprovedDS-47104
Improved the response time of the dsreplication command.

Added logging history for the setup tool

PingDirectory
ImprovedDS-47831
A copy of the setup script output is now saved to an archive file in the /history directory. This should help with troubleshooting installations where multiple server images have been extracted on top of each other and setup has been run multiple times.

Fixed a NullPointerException caused by an unconfigured alert handler

PingDirectory, PingDirectoryProxy, PingDataSync, PingDataMetrics
FixedDS-47455
Fixed an issue where a NullPointerException was thrown when an alert or alarm was raised and one or more of the alert handlers weren't configured. This most commonly happened when the server was being stopped.

Now, instead of throwing a NullPointerException, the server logs this message: Alert notification '<notification>' will not be processed by alert handler '<alert_handler>' since that alert handler does not have configuration.

Fixed an encoding issue with UTF-8 in URI search filters

PingDirectory, PingDataSync
FixedDS-48300
Fixed an issue where PingDataSync couldn't properly encode certain UTF-8 characters used in a URI search request filter sent to an external server. The server is now able to encode filter values that include any UTF-8 characters.

Fixed a potential NullPointerException during replication

PingDirectory
FixedDS-47289
Fixed a potential NullPointerException that the server could throw during replication if missing changes were found for a replica, but that replica didn't exist on all servers. This scenario can happen when an obsolete replica is purged concurrent to the check for missing changes.

Fixed an issue where obsolete replicas weren't always purged

PingDirectory
FixedDS-47369
Fixed an issue where obsolete replicas were sometimes not being purged from replication servers.

Fixed a replication issue where a suffix could have multiple generation IDs

PingDirectory
FixedDS-47695
The generation ID, represented by ds-sync-generation-id, is a value used by replication to determine if replicas are compatible and can be replicated. To address the issue of multiple generation IDs for the same suffix, the generation ID is now calculated independent of the disk order in which the entries are stored. This new behavior is helpful when entries are imported on new servers instead of initializing them.

Fixed an issue with dsreplication status information

PingDirectory
FixedDS-47326
Fixed an issue where running the dsreplication status --displayservertable command sometimes failed to display peer server statuses or generation IDs.

Fixed an incorrect suggestion in the replication terminal output

PingDirectory
FixedDS-47878
Fixed a problem where dsreplication initialize suggested using the --force option if you were unable to connect to the server properly.

Fixed a performance issue when adding servers to large, dispersed topologies

PingDirectory
FixedDS-46664
Added caching logic to address a performance issue that occurred when adding new servers to large, replicated topologies spanning multiple geographic locations.

Fixed an issue where the server could throw a DATABASE_LOCK_CONFLICT error

PingDirectory
FixedDS-45949
Fixed an issue where aborting a transaction on a PingDirectory server could sometimes fail to release a write-lock, causing all subsequent transactions to fail with the error DATABASE_LOCK_CONFLICT until the server was restarted.

Fixed an issue with backend availability reporting

PingDirectoryProxy
FixedDS-48040
Fixed an issue where PingDirectoryProxy wouldn't accurately report the availability of backends added through automatic backend discovery.
