With Communications Services Delegated Administrator, you can provision users in an LDAP Schema 2 directory only. To provision Messaging Server users in an LDAP Schema 1 directory, you must use iPlanet Delegated Administrator, a deprecated tool.
The Delegated Administrator 6 2005Q4 release implements the following new features:
The Delegated Administrator console supports provisioning for Calendar Server.
In earlier releases, only the Delegated Administrator utility (commadmin ) supported Calendar Server.
The following console features implement support for Calendar Server:
Service packages with Calendar service can be allocated to organizations and assigned to users.
You can create and manage Calendar resources in the console.
You can create and manage groups in the console. Groups can have mail service (mailing lists), used by Messaging Server.
Service packages provide additional features and flexibility:
New types of service packages have been implemented. In addition to service packages for mail users, there are now service packages for calendar users and mail groups.
Services can be combined in a single service package. One type of service package provides both mail service and calendar service for users.
When you allocate or assign a service package, the Allocate or Assign Service Package wizard allows you to furnish specific values for service-related attributes. The specified values override the values in the service package itself for the target user, group, or organization.
The Delegated Administrator console’s interface has been improved. For example, the following enhancements have been made:
In the organization view, a second row of tabs has been added. By selecting these tabs, you can display lists of users, groups, Calendar resources, service packages, or properties. In the previous release, lists of users, service packages, and properties were displayed by means of drop-down lists.
You are not required to assign a service package to each user or group. In the previous release, a service package had to be assigned to each user.
