You can use the vdmadmin command with the -X option to detect and resolve colliding LDAP entries on replicated View Connection Server instances in a group.

Syntax

vdmadmin -X [-b authentication_arguments] -collisions [-resolve]

Usage Notes

If duplicate LDAP entries are created on two or more View Connection Server instances, this can cause problems with the integrity of LDAP data in View. For example, this condition can happen during an upgrade while LDAP replication is inoperative. Although View checks for this error condition at regular intervals, you can run the vdmadmin command on one of the View Connection Server instances in the group to detect and resolve LDAP entry collisions manually.
