This section covers the following:
Directory Proxy Server configurator hangs at times
Directory Proxy Server configurator sometimes hangs. The configurator needs to be re-run for successful configuration.
DPS config failed during installation (6291549)
DPS config fails during installation on a FAT32 file system.
DPS configuration fails on localized Windows version (6266488)
The problem is in the *.cacl files:
They specify the permissions for the installed DPS files. Example line:
bin/dps/admin/servlets/dps-server52.jar/g Administrators:f Everyone:r
The problem is that on german Windows 2000 there are no users/groups "Administrators/Everyone". They are mentioned as "Administratoren/Jeder". It is the same case with other localizations as well.
Workaround (can be done for config-later only):
- Start JES installer and install DPS in config later mode. After installation is done, edit the three *cacl files listed above as:
This is a suggested modification for german locale. The same is to be done for other locales also. You need to configure DPS as per the instructions given in the config_DPS.txt file.
- Add Administrators/Everyone to the groups with the same rights as the german correspondents. But this is not allowed in some environments for security reasons.
Sun Java System Directory Proxy Server 5.2 2005Q1 does not contain any files which you can redistribute.
