Hello, everyone. I did something really stupid. I accidentally
destroyed our Single Master replica server (that's what I get for
resynching a failed RAID1 drive without realizing the drive device names
had changed because of the failed drive!). Thankfully we were not yet
in production (although very close and thus using lots of data).
However, because we were not yet in production, it was not backed up.
I'd like to recover the data from the read only replica. I'm guessing I
can disable replication on the RO server and it will retain the data but
now with write privileges. I can then rebuild the master, create a
reverse replication agreement to transfer the data back. Then I can
break that replication agreement, create a new one in the correct
direction, and reinitialize the supplier.
However, when I created the replica server, we told it to join an
existing directory server domain. Is this simply based upon name? In
other words, once I rebuild the main server and configure it using the
same name and address as the original, will the secondary recognize it
as the domain to which it registered or do I really need to destroy all
servers and recreate the entire domain from scratch? Thanks - John

I upgraded my FDS install (yum upgrade fedora-ds, yum upggrade
fedora-ds-base etc..) on one of my boxes and the directory restarts fine.
However I receive the following messages in the error log. I am hoping that
someone has seen this message before and can decipher it for me.
The entry exists in the dse file so I figure it is some new configuration
parameter as it is new since upgrade. I tried Google before the list and
nothing turned up.
