OID Indexes

Dave Bennett 06/08/2008

Here are a few simple notes for handling OID indexes.

If you want to search on an attribute in OAM where the data is stored in OID it must be indexed. Sometimes you might want to remove and then possible re-add an index. Index adding and removal can be handles with LDIF, however, if you need to recreate an index on existing data then you need to use a command line tool called catalog.

Index an attribute

Remove an index

Re-index an attribute that was previously removed. If you remove an index form an attribute and the data remains and you need to re-index the data in place then you need to use the catalog command line tool.

Unwilling to perform
If after the attribute has been re-indexed the directory server will still not allow it to be searched and returns an unwilling to perform error, try restarting the OID gateway.

Current Indexed Attributes
Use ldapsearch to get the current indexed attributes
