Re: [Samba] Questions on DRS replicate command




Hi,

Thanks for your feedback.

Here are some more information :

- what version of samba you're using.

4.7


- the actual error you're getting (e.g. a python exception?).

This is a timeout error in samba-tool

I've not seen it myself, but from the description, it looks like an exception raised from the samba-tool script.


- the exact options you're passing to the command, e.g. are you using --local?

samba-tool drs replicate DC2 DC1 dc=samdom,dc=example,dc=com

We're note using "--local"


- roughly how many records are in your DB.

There are more than 25000 objects


Best regards,

Julien

Hi,

We fixed a similar problem with the join command in v4.10 - see
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13612

I think we've done some testing recently around 'samba-tool drs
replicate' on large DBs without problems. So it might help if you tell us:
- what version of samba you're using.
- the actual error you're getting (e.g. a python exception?).
- the exact options you're passing to the command, e.g. are you using
--local?
- roughly how many records are in your DB.

1. It depends a bit on what command options you specified.

2. The command should wait until replication completes, unless you use
the --async-op option.

3. Not sure. Maybe try 'samba-tool drs showrepl'?

Thanks,
Tim

Hi,

I have some question about the command "samba-tool drs replicate"
command.

On a server with a big number of objects to synchronize, the command
makes a timeout error. Now it looks like the sync actually occurs.

I also see that there is an option to make the command asynchronous
(not waiting for the result of the replication), but then I'm not sure
how to confirm the process is complete and successful.

1) when the replication is synchronous, if the timeout occurs, is it
actually interrupted or is it just the client side tool that gives up
waiting for an answer ?

2) when you know the replication is going to be long, can you ask the
command to wait for the end (no timeout) ?

3) when you use the --async-op option, how can you check when the
command is complete ? Can you get a status for it, making sure it has
actually succeeded ?


Regards,

Julien
