[--guid GGGG-UU-IIII replica-address
Adds a replication link with the specified server. The serverID and GUID of the remote machine you'd like to replicate
with. The serverID and GUID can be viewed in the target machine's computer record. Replication links are unidirec-
tional, the corresponding command should be run on the target server as well to get full replication working. Caution
should be exercised with this command, it is best to avoid replication loops.
-changeip old-ip new-ip
| Updates configuration records and files to contain the new host information. It does not change the IP address in Network preferences.
new-admin new-fullname new-uid
[search base suffix> [realm>]]
Creates a new master LDAP server. Copies the root account to the new master domain. Creates a new directory node administrator.
[--certAdminEmail Email] master IP or name admin user
Create a new replica from an existing LDAP master.
| Create a CA on the OD master.
Turns off the LDAP server and deletes its database. The optional argument of the diradmin account name will then prompt
for the diradmin password and will inform all replication peers of the server's destruction.
-promotereplica admin-user archive-path
Converts an existing replica into a master using the current database. Path to an archive from the master can given in
order to add the root CA's keys to the promoted master.
[--guid GGGG-UU-IIIIDDD] -replica-address
Removes a replication link with the specified server. The GUID of the remote server being removed should be passed in
with the --guid option. Replication links are unidirectional, so the corresponding command should be run on the target
server to remove the other half of an existing replication link.
Configures the machine to bind using DHCP if it is not already a client.
-setldapconfig [-maxresults maximum search results>] [-searchtimeout timeout] [-ssl on|off] [-sslcert path to cert>]
[-sslkey ] [-sslcacert path to CA cert>]
Applies the specified settings and restarts slapd. Settings not specified are unchanged.
Configures the machine to only use the local directory.
-setmacosxodpolicy [-binding [disabled|enabled|required]] [-cleartext [blocked|allowed]] [-encrypt [yes|no]] [-sign
[yes|no]] [-clientcaching [yes|no]] [-man-in-middle [blocked|allowed]]
Sets directory binding options.
| Configures launchd to run slapd.
| Configures launchd not to run slapd.
| Merges new interfaces into the list of LDAP replicas.
| Divorces the password server from a replicated system and issues a new RSA key. Users in the local
and LDAP directories are migrated to the new key. Valid key sizes are 1024, 2048, and 3072. There
is a performance penalty when using large keys.
| Converts a user account to have an Open Directory authentication type. A new password server slot
and kerberos principal are created. If the user was previously an Open Directory user, the old slot
and principal are deleted and replaced.
|Sets up a launchd plist file and starts the password server.
|Sets the launchd plist file to be disabled and stops the password server.
| Turns on the LDAP server logging to /var/log/slapd.log.
[yes | no]
| The LDAP server defaults to running in a "full sync mode" to ensure database transactions are fully
flushed to disk. This improves data integrity in the event of a power loss, but can result in
slower performance when importing large datasets. Setting this option to no disables this functionality temporarily in order to speed up large imports. After the import has been completed,
this option should be set back to yes for normal operation.
Backup and Restore
| Creates an archive containing the LDAP, Password Server and Kerberos databases. It also contains Certificate Authority
| Restores a directory to the backed-up state.
SSOUtilDebugLevel can be set to change the verbosity of the log. Valid values are [0-9]. The
default value is 1.
