After postinstallation configuration is complete, use the instructions in this section to start and stop Directory Server. If Directory Server is part of a cluster, ensure that you are working on the active node for the logical host.
Before using the dsadm command to start or stop Directory Server, verify that the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable is unset. If this variable is not unset, you might receive an error when dsadm cannot find a dependent library.
If a Directory Server instance does not yet exist, create one.
On the command line, change to DirectoryServer-base/bin.
Start the Directory Server instance. For example:
./dsadm start /var/opt/SUNWdsee/dsins1
