Use express configuration if you are installing iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 to evaluate or test the product. Because express configuration does not offer you the choice of selecting your server port number or your directory suffix, you should not use it for production configurations. To perform an express configuration, do the following.
Run the iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 program by typing the following.
# /usr/sbin/directoryserver setup
When you are prompted for what you want to install, hit enter for [the default] iPlanet servers.
When you are prompted for the type of configuration, choose Express.
For the user and group to run the servers as, enter the identity that you want this server to run as.
For Configuration Directory Administrator ID and password, enter the name and password that you will log in as when you want to authenticate to the console with full privileges. Think of this as the root or superuser identity for the iPlanet Console.
The server is then minimally configured, and started. You are told what host and port number on which the Administration Server is listening.
The iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 is listening on port 389
The server is configured to use the following suffixes
That is, if your machine is named test.example.com, then you have the suffix dc=example, dc=com configured for this server.
Do not modify the contents of the directory under the o=NetscapeRoot suffix. Either create data under the first suffix, or create a new suffix to be used for this purpose. For details on how to create new suffixes for your iPlanet Directory Server 5.1, see the iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 Administrator's Guide.
