Sun Java System Communications Services 6 2005Q4 Delegated Administrator Guide

Steps for Creating a Provider Organization and Service Provider Administrator

You use an ldif file, da.provider.skeleton.ldif, to perform the following procedure.

ProcedureTo create a provider organization and Service Provider Administrator

  1. Create a mail domain in the directory.

    If you have not already done so, create a mail domain in your directory. The provider organization and its subordinate shared organizations will use this mail domain.

  2. Copy and rename the da.provider.skeleton.ldif file.

    When you install Delegated Administrator, the da.provider.skeleton.ldif file is installed in the following directory:


  3. Edit the following parameters in your copy of the da.provider.skeleton.ldif file. Replace the parameters with the correct values for your installation.

    For definitions of the parameters, see Information Needed to Create a Provider Organization, Subordinate Organization, and SPA.

    Some parameters are used more than once in the ldif file. You must search for and replace all instances of each parameter.

    A few parameters represent values for multivalued attributes. You can copy and edit these parameters, together with their associated attribute names, to allow multiple instances of these attributes in your ldif file. Multivalued parameters are noted below.

    • <ugldapbasedn>

    • <maildomain_dn>

    • <maildomain_dn_str>

    • <providerorg>

    • <servicepackage> (multivalued)

    • <domain_name> (multivalued)

    • <provider_sub_org>

    • <preferredmailhost>

    • <available_domain_name> (multivalued)

    • <available_services> (multivalued)

    • <spa_uid>

    • <spa_password>

    • <spa_firstname>

    • <spa_lastname>

    • <spa_servicepackage>

    • <spa_mailaddress>

      For definitions of the attributes associated with these parameters, see “Chapter 5: Communications Services Delegated Administrator Classes and Attributes (Schema 2)” and “Chapter 3: Messaging Server and Calendar Server Attributes” in the Sun Java System Communications Services Schema Reference.

  4. Use the LDAP directory tool ldapmodify to install the provider organization and SPA in the directory.

    For example, you could run the following command:

    ldapmodify -D <directory manager> -w <password> \
    -f <da.provider.finished.ldif>


    <directory manager> is the name of the Directory Server administrator.

    <password> is the password of the Directory Service administrator.

    <da.provider.finished.ldif> is the name of the edited ldif file to be installed as a new provider organization and SPA in the directory.
