This section includes all the behavioral changes that are made in this release.
The Directory Server Enterprise Edition product layout is changed as mentioned below:
All commands are available in install-path/dsee7/bin.
The plug-ins are available in install-path/dsee7/lib.
For a complete list of file locations, see Software Layout for Directory Server Enterprise Edition in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Reference.
Starting with Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0, the export process (dsadm export) always puts the Replica Update Vector (RUV) as last entry in the exported LDIF file.
Directory Server Enterprise Edition loads the libraries for Sun Microsystems plug-ins from the path where the software is installed. The libraries are no more loaded from the path mentioned in the LDIF.
A new threading model improves import performance on multi-core machines.
If an import is multi-pass, merging of the indexes happens in parallel if there is enough memory for holding the index and its temporary files. The parallel merging of indexes results in improved performance.
When a search operation returns attributes whose syntax requires binary transfer, it appends the ;binary qualifier to the attribute name. To disable compliance with RFC 4522, set the compat-flag property to no-rfc4522.
This sections describes changes in the behavior of administrative commands.
The dsadm and dpadm commands provide the new list-running-instances and stop-running-instances options for listing and stopping locally running servers.
The dsadm command also provides additional options for managing certificates, --sigalg, --phone, --email, and --dns described in dsadm(1M) .
The dpadm set-flags command supports two new flags,jvm-path and server-umask, described in dpadm(1M).
Several commands were available in previous versions of Directory Server Enterprise Edition but whose functions are now provided by other commands, as described in Command Line Changes in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Upgrade and Migration Guide
Some commands were removed from Directory Server Enterprise Edition, as described in Command Line Changes in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Upgrade and Migration Guide.
A binary backup modifies the backup files by running a database recovery, thus flushing backup transaction logs to the backup databases. To leave the backup as it is, use the --flags no-recovery option.
Re-indexing is performed more efficiently, reusing some recent import techniques and speed improvements.
The dsconf info command reports which attributes need to be re-indexed (for example, after a configuration change).
The root DSE contains the list of supported ciphers as reported by the security library. In release 7.0, the root DSE also contains the ciphers that are available for SSL negotiation under the enabledSSLCiphers attribute, and it is by default a subset of all the supported ciphers.
