[389-users] Re: replication is failing

The replication was a multiple master between two RHEL 7.7 servers running 389 ds. It really looks like the replication manager password expired. I found in a RH DS manual that if a password expiration policy is in force to disable it on the replication manager. So what I need is a way to either reset the replication manager password, probably from the command line, or recreate it and recreate the replication agreement.
I also had to reset the directory manager password so I could in turn reset the admin login on the 389 console gui.

Can you please provide more details about the replication agreements and the accounts you are using for authenticating these agreements?
