CA Directory



In Symantec Directory, there has been an enhancement to the DSA that allows you to determine the total number of entries the DSA has at any given time.



Component: ETRDIR


To check the total number of entries, you will need to telnet to the "console" port of the DSA, and enter the DXconsole command "get cache;".


telnet localhost <console_port>
