With Directory Server Enterprise Edition, you can install Directory Server Core, Directory Proxy Server, and the tools for administering your directory service remotely. Directory Server provides LDAP and DSML directory services, managing client access to your directory database. Directory Proxy Server offers proxy LDAP service with configurable load balancing and routing. Directory Proxy Server also enables data distribution for high scalability, and virtual directory access to both LDAP and relational databases. Remote administration tools include the web based Directory Service Control Center, and command line remote configuration tools.
In production deployments, you typically deploy each Directory Server Enterprise Edition component on a different host. Before deploying Directory Server Enterprise Edition software in production, read the Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Deployment Planning Guide.
This example provides guidelines for installing Directory Server on a single host.
Directory Server has no dependencies on other Java ES product components.
If you are using this product component with Sun Cluster software, you must perform a precise series of tasks before installing any product components. Refer to Sun Cluster Software Example
Directory Server must be running before installing other product components that depend on Directory Server.
The following high-level tasks are required:
Checking the installation sequence guidelines
Check to see what sequence guidelines apply. Refer to Table 2–1.
Checking the installation prerequisites
Check to see what installation prerequisites apply. Refer to Table 1–3.
