The key software dependency requirements are as following:
Directory Server relies on the Network Security Services, NSS, layer for cryptographic algorithms. NSS has been validated to work with the Sun cryptographic framework provided on Solaris 10 systems, which supports cryptographic acceleration devices.
On Microsoft Windows systems, you must disable the pop-up blocker to make Directory Service Control Center work properly.
Directory Proxy Server will work with any LDAPv3 compliant directory servers, but it is tested only with Sun Directory Server.
On Solaris 10, rc.scripts are deprecated so commands like dsadm autostart are not supported. Instead use Solaris 10 Service Management Facility (SMF) to handle these types of requests. For example, dsadm enable-service. For more information on SMF, see the Solaris operating system documentation.
