Copying Configuration Files Between Oracle Virtual Directory Servers Using syncovdconfig

You can use the syncovdconfig command to copy the following Oracle Virtual Directory configuration files between multiple Oracle Virtual Directory components:

  • server.os_xml
  • adapters.os_xml
  • acls.os_xml
  • schema.user.xml

The syncovdconfig command (.pl for UNIX/Linux and.bat for Windows) is located in the $ORACLE_HOME/ovd/bin/ directory. The following is the syntax for syncovdconfig:

syncovdconfig -srcHost source_host_name -srcPort source_port_number
-srcUserName source_user_name -dstHost destination_host_name
-dstPort destination_port_number -dstUserName destination_user_name
-configFile name_of_configuration_file -adapterName name_of_adapter
-isSrcAdminSSL [true |false] -isDstAdminSSL [true |false]

Notes:

  • You will be prompted for the password for both the source and destination users.
  • Set the Oracle Home variable before using the syncovdconfig command.

Options

The following is a list of the options for syncovdconfig:

srcHost
Required. String format. The host name of the source Oracle Virtual Directory server—that is, the Oracle Virtual Directory server that contains the configuration files you want to copy to a different Oracle Virtual Directory server.
srcPort
Required. Integer format. The listening port number of the source Oracle Virtual Directory server—that is, the Oracle Virtual Directory server that contains the configuration files you want to copy to a different Oracle Virtual Directory server.
srcUserName
Optional. String format. The superuser of the source Oracle Virtual Directory server—that is, the Oracle Virtual Directory server that contains the configuration files you want to copy to a different Oracle Virtual Directory server. If the srcUserName option is not specified, the default value of cn=orcladmin is used.
dstHost
Required. String format. The host name of the destination Oracle Virtual Directory server—that is, the Oracle Virtual Directory server where you want to copy the configuration files to.
dstPort
Required. Integer format. The listening port number of the destination Oracle Virtual Directory server—that is, the Oracle Virtual Directory server where you want to copy the configuration files to.
dstUserName
Optional. String format. The superuser of the destination Oracle Virtual Directory server—that is, the Oracle Virtual Directory server where you want to copy the configuration files to. If the dstUserName option is not specified, the default value of cn=orcladmin is used.
configFile
Optional. String format. The name of the configuration file on the source Oracle Virtual Directory server that you want to copy to the destination Oracle Virtual Directory server. You can use the configFile option multiple times in the same command to copy more than one configuration file.If you do not include the configFile option, the server.os_xml, adapters.os_xml, acls.os_xml, and schema.user.xml files on the source Oracle Virtual Directory server are copied to the destination Oracle Virtual Directory server.

adapterName
Optional. String format. The name of the adapter on the source Oracle Virtual Directory server that you want to copy to the destination Oracle Virtual Directory server. You can use the adapterName option multiple times in the same command to copy more than one adapter.If you do not include the adapterName option—but you include the configFile option and specify an adapters.os.xml file, you will overwrite the adapters.os.xml file on the destination Oracle Virtual Directory server.

Surround adapter names that contain space characters with quotation marks (“). For example:

ORACLE_HOME/ovd/bin/syncovdconfig.pl -srcHost sales.west.com -srcPort 8888 \
-dstHost sales.east.com -dstPort 8899 -configFile adapters.os_xml \
-adapterName "Sales Organizations"
isSrcAdminSSL
Optional. Boolean format. Indicates whether or not the administrative Listener on the source Oracle Virtual Directory component is SSL enabled. Supported values are true and false. If the isSrcAdminSSL option is not specified, the default value of true is used.
isDstAdminSSL
Optional. Boolean format. Indicates whether or not the administrative Listener on the destination Oracle Virtual Directory component is SSL enabled. Supported values are true and false. If the isDstAdminSSL option is not specified, the default value of true is used.

Examples

The following are examples of the syncovdconfig command:

  • To synchronize the server.os_xml, adapters.os_xml, acls.os_xml, and schema.user.xml files between two Oracle Virtual Directory components:
    ORACLE_HOME/ovd/bin/syncovdconfig.pl –srcHost  sales.west.com –srcPort 8899 \
    –srcUserName cn=orcladmin  –dstHost sales.west.com –dstPort 8888 –dstUserName \
    cn=orcladmin  -isSrcAdminSSl true –isDstAdminSSL false
    
  • To synchronize only the server.os_xml file between two Oracle Virtual Directory components:
    ORACLE_HOME/ovd/bin/syncovdconfig.pl –srcHost  sales.west.com –srcPort 8899 \
    –srcUserName cn=orcladmin –dstHost sales.west.com –dstPort 8888 \
    –dstUserName cn=orcladmin -configFile server.os_xml
    
  • To synchronize multiple files between two Oracle Virtual Directory components:
    ORACLE_HOME/ovd/bin/syncovdconfig.pl –srcHost  sales.west.com –srcPort 8899 \
    –srcUserName cn=orcladmin –dstHost sales.west.com –dstPort 8888 \
    –dstUserName cn=orcladmin -configFile server.os_xml –configFile adapters.os_xml
    
  • To synchronize a specific adapter between two Oracle Virtual Directory components:
    ORACLE_HOME/ovd/bin/syncovdconfig.pl –srcHost  sales.west.com –srcPort 8899 \
    –srcUserName cn=orcladmin –dstHost sales.west.com –dstPort 8888 \
    –dstUserName cn=orcladmin -configFile server.os_xml \
    -configFile adapters.os_xml –adapterName Sales
