11.20. Replication with Earlier Releases
11.20.1. Using Legacy Replication
- Directory Server 9.0 is a consumer.
- The legacy suppliers can be Directory Server 4.0, 4.1, and 4.1x.
- A legacy Directory Server and Directory Server 9.0 cannot update the same replica. However, this version of Directory Server can have different replicas, where one is supplied by a legacy Directory Server and the other is supplied by Directory Server 9.0.
- Directory Server 9.0 cannot be a supplier for other replicas.
11.20.2. Legacy Replication and Parent Object Classes

11.20.3. Configuring Legacy Replication
- In the Directory Server Console, click the Configuration tab.
- Select the Replication node, and click the Legacy Consumer Settings tab in the right pane.
- Check the Enable Legacy Consumer check box.This activates the fields in the Authentication box.
- Specify the supplier bind DN that the legacy supplier server will use to bind to the consumer.Optionally, specify a password at least 8 characters long.
- Now configure legacy consumer settings for each replica that will receive updates from a legacy supplier.
- In the navigation tree, expand the Replication node, and select a replica that will receive updates from the legacy supplier.
- In the Common Settings area, select the Enable Replica and Updatable by a 4.x Replica check boxes.These options are the only ones required for replication to work. Optionally, specify a replica ID. It is not necessary to specify a supplier DN because the one specified in step 4 will be used.
- Repeat step 6 for each read-only replica that will receive updates from a legacy supplier.
- To complete the legacy replication setup, configure the legacy supplier to replicate to the Directory Server 9.0 instance. For instructions on configuring a replication agreement on a 4.x Directory Server, see the documentation for the legacy Directory Server.
