Document Conventions Used in This Guide
This guide uses conventions for the Solaris operating environment. If you are running the Calendar Server on another UNIX system or a Windows NT system, use the file path equivalents for your operating system whenever Solaris file paths are shown.
The Monospaced Font typeface is used for any text that appears on the computer screen or text that you should type. It is also used for file names, distinguished names, functions, and examples.
The Italicized Font typeface represents text that you enter using information unique to your installation. It is used for server directory paths and names. For example, in this guide you will see directory path references in the form:
In these situations, server-root represents the directory where you installed the Calendar Server. For example:
The default installation directory on Solaris uses the path /opt/SUNWics5/cal as the server-root for the software files. Therefore, if you choose the default installation directory, server-root/cal represents:
On Unix systems other than Solaris, the default installation directory is /opt/iPlanet/CalendarServer5/cal, where server-root/cal represents:
On Windows NT, the default installation directory is c:\Program Files\iPlanet\CalendarServer5\cal, where server-root/cal represents:
Square Brackets [ ]
Square (or straight) brackets [ ] enclose optional parameters. For example, the syntax for the csdb utility check command is: csdb check [dbdir]
The dbdir parameter is optional. If you omit dbdir, the csdb utility uses the current directory specified in the ics.conf file.
Vertical Bar (|)
A vertical bar (|) separates alternatives in a horizontal list. For example, the syntax for the csdb utility create or delete command uses the vertical bar to specify various options you can use:
csdb [-q|-v] [-t caldb|sessdb|statdb] create|delete [dbdir]
Command-line prompts (such as % for a C-Shell or $ for a Korn or Bourne shell) are not shown in the examples in this guide. The actual prompt you will see depends on the operating system you are using. Unless specifically noted, enter each command as it appears in this document.
