This chapter describes how to get started evaluating Directory Server Enterprise Edition (DSEE)with the Evaluation Kit. It outlines where to get component products, how to install them, and where to obtain the Evaluation Kit.
The Evaluation Kit is provided as is. It is not part of DSEE and is not covered by the support contract. It is intended for evaluation purposes only and is not supported in a production environment.
This chapter contains the following topics:
The Evaluation Kit provides a collection of automated demonstration scripts that help you evaluate the features of DSEE through the command line. In addition to the scripts, the Evaluation Kit contains sample data and the configuration files required to run the evaluation.
You can download the Evaluation Kit from http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/scripts/indexSjs.html. Click the link to the Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Evaluation Kit.
The Evaluation Kit is not supported on Windows.
The Evaluation Kit is delivered in a compressed archive (ZIP) file named dsee6-kit.tar.gz. Once installed, the Evaluation Kit sets up the following files and directories:
A global configuration file, env.cfgin the main install-base directory. Do not modify this file.
A directory, install-base/kit/, that contains the evaluation scripts.
A unique configuration file, dsee6-env.cfg in the install-base/kit/ directory, that contains configurable variables.
A command-line utility, install-base/tools/zonemgr, which allows you to set up and manage SolarisTM 10 zones, if you want to use them in this evaluation.
This section outlines how to install the DSEE software. It provides a brief overview of the packaging formats required if you plan to use the Evaluation Kit, describes what component products are installed by the packages, and provides pointers to information about installing DSEE manually or automatically.
DSEE 6.0 is available in two packaging formats:
Java Enterprise System distribution, the native package distribution that is provided as part of Sun Java Enterprise System. The Java Enterprise System distribution does not include the Directory Server Resource Kit.
You install software from the Java Enterprise System distribution with the Java Enterprise System installer.
Zip distribution, which supports non-root installations. The zip distribution does not include the Directory Service Control Center.
If you plan to use the Evaluation Kit, which requires both the Directory Server Resource Kit and the Directory Service Control Center, you need to install both packaging formats.
The DSEE 6.0 distribution includes the following component products:
Directory Service Control Center
Directory Proxy Server
Identity Synchronization for Windows
Directory Server Resource Kit
Directory Server has no component product prerequisites.
Directory Proxy Server depends on Directory Server to route LDAP requests to backend Directory Servers.
For a production environment, install DSEE using the Java Enterprise System installer. For more information about installing DSEE, see Part I, Installing Directory Service Control Center, Directory Proxy Server, Directory Server, and Directory Server Resource Kit, in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Installation Guide. For detailed instructions on using all features of the Java Enterprise System installer, see the Java Enterprise System documentation at http://docs.sun.com/coll/1286.2.
To evaluate DSEE in a non-production environment using the Evaluation Kit, you can install DSEE automatically by using a demonstration script from the Evaluation Kit, or you can install DSEE manually.
To automate the installation of DSEE, run the Install_DSEE6.sh script as root. This script installs Directory Server and Directory Proxy Server using both the zip distribution and the Java Enterprise System distribution. The script describes each step of the installation as it proceeds. For more information about how to download and run this script, refer to the README file provided with the Evaluation Kit.
If you do not want to use the demonstration script, you can install each component product manually.
For information about installing Directory Server manually, see To Install Only Directory Server From the Zip Distribution in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Installation Guide.
For information about installing Directory Proxy Server manually, see To Install Only Directory Proxy Server From the Zip Distribution in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Installation Guide.
To uninstall the software automatically, run the Uninstall_DSEE6.sh script. This script shuts down all instances, removes any instance data, and cleanly uninstalls the DSEE packages. For more information about this script, refer to the README file provided with the Evaluation Kit.
For information about uninstalling the software manually, see Chapter 2, Uninstallation, in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Installation Guide.
