17.4 After the Migration

After migration, the target eDirectory instance listens on the IP address of the target server and not on the source server’s address. It requires additional time after migration for the eDirectory instance to synchronize the new IP address in the replica ring. Successful eDirectory migration can be verified by performing eDirectory operations on the new IP address.

If you want to use the existing security certificates, you must change the IP address of the target server to that of the source server. If you don’t want to do this, you must issue new certificates.

NOTE:If you change the IP address of the target server after migration, you must modify the nds.conf file, restart the eDirectory instance, and repair the network address and partitions replica manually. For more information on repairing eDirectory instance, see DSRepair Options in the NetIQ eDirectory Administration Guide.
