This section describe how to update and delete existing database links. It contains the following procedures:

3.3.4.1. Updating Remote Server Authentication Information

To update the bind DN and password used by the database link to connect to the remote server, do the following:
  1. In the Directory Server Console, select the Configuration tab.
  2. In the left pane, expand the Data folder, and locate the database link to update under one of the suffixes. Select the database link.
  3. In the right navigation pane, click the Authentication tab.
  4. To update the remote server information, enter a new LDAP URL in the Remote Server URL field.
    Unlike the standard LDAP URL format, the URL of the remote server does not specify a suffix. It takes the form ldap://hostname:port/.
  5. Update the bind DN used by the database link to bind with the remote server by entering a new DN in the Database link bind DN field.
  6. Update the password used by the database link to bind with the remote server by entering a new password in the Database link password field. Confirm the password by retyping it in the Confirm database link password field.
    The remote server checklist box lists the administrative user entry, suffix, and ACI that need to exist on the remote server for the database link to bind successfully.
  7. Click Save.
