db2index — Directory Server script for indexing attributes


db2index [-Z serverID] [-n backend | {-s includeSuffix}* -t attribute[:indextypes[:matchingrules]] -T vlvTag] [-h]


Reindexes the database index files. The Directory Server must be stopped prior to running this script.


A summary of options is included below:

-Z Server Identifier
The server ID of the Directory Server instance. If there is only one instance on the system, this option can be skipped.
-n Backend Name
The name of the LDBM database to reindex. Example: userRoot
-s includeSuffix
Specifies suffixes to be included or the subtrees to be included
-t attributeName[:indextypes[:matchingrules]]
The attribute to index. Optionally you can specify a comma separated list of index types: eq, sub, pres, and approx. An optional matching rule OID can also be set.
-T vlvTag
This is the name of the vlv index entry under cn=config.
Display the usage.


db2index -n userRoot -t uid:eq,sub: -t cn:eq,pres

db2index -Z instance2 -s 'dc=example,dc=com' -t uid:eq:pres:sub -t sn

db2index -Z instance3


Exit status is zero if no errors occur. Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error.
