Sun Java System Communications Services 6 2005Q4 Delegated Administrator Guide

For Former Users of iPlanet Delegated Administrator

Communications Services Delegated Administrator is designed for provisioning users in an LDAP Schema 2 directory.

Users of previous versions of Messaging Server who have an LDAP Schema 1 directory may have used iPlanet Delegated Administrator, a deprecated tool. If you still have a Schema 1 directory, you should use iPlanet Delegated Administrator to provision users.

iPlanet Delegated Administrator uses slightly different terms for the administrator roles than those currently used by Communications Service Delegated Administrator.

Table 1–1 lists and defines the administrator roles in each version of Delegated Administrator.
