NS-ACTIVATE.PL(8)            System Manager's Manual           NS-ACTIVATE.PL(8)

       ns-activate.pl - Directory Server perl script for activating entries.

       ns-activate.pl [-Z serverID] [-D rootdn] { -w password | -w - | -j
       filename } [-p port] [-h host] [-P protocol] -I DN

       Activates an entry or group of entries.

       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.

       -D Root DN
              The Directory Manager DN, or root DN.  If not specified, the
              script will search the server instance configuration for the

       -w password
              The rootdn password.

       -w -
              Prompt for the rootdn password.

       -j password filename
              The name of the file that contains the root DN password.

       -P Protocol
              The connection protocol to connect to the Directory Server.
              Protocols are STARTTLS, LDAPS, LDAPI, and LDAP.  If this option is
              skipped, the most secure protocol that is available is used.  For
              LDAPI, AUTOBIND is also available for the root user.

       -I DN  Specifies the entry DN or role DN to activate.

       -h host
              Host name of the Directory Server.

       -p port
              Port number of the Directory Server.

       ns-activate.pl -Z instance2 -D 'cn=directory manager' -j /tmp/passwd.txt
       -P STARTTLS -I 'uid=user,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com'

              Note: security must be enabled to use protocol STARTTLS.  If
              STARTTLS is not available it will default to next
              strongest/available protocol automatically.

       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.
