Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.1 Installation Guide

ProcedureTo Install the Directory Server Connector

  1. Enable the button next to the Directory Server Connector component and then click Next.

    The Directory Server Connector Credentials panel is displayed.

    Provide your User DN and password for the primary Directory
Server, and for the secondary server (if applicable).
    Note –

    The program automatically completes the User DN fields with your fully qualified Directory Manager distinguished name, but you can change the information if necessary.

    Enter the following information:

    • Primary Directory Server User DN: If necessary, change the default user DN by entering a fully qualified Directory Manager distinguished name.

    • Primary Directory Server Password: Enter your Directory Manager password.

      If you are using a secondary master, the Secondary Directory Server User Name and Password fields will be active. The program automatically completes the Directory Manager DN field with the same entries provided for the Primary Directory Server User DN and Password fields. You can change this information if necessary.

      The program will verify that the Directory Server was prepared and ready to synchronize data. When you prepared Directory Server (Preparing Sun Directory Source), the program creates an account that the Connector will use to connect to Directory Server (for example, uid=PSWConnector,suffix).

  2. Click Next to proceed to the Connector Port Configuration pane.

    Enter your fully qualified local host name and a connector
port number.
  3. Enter the Fully Qualified Local Host Name with the domain and an available port number where the Connector will listen. (Specifying a port already in use will result in an error message.)

  4. Click Next and the Ready to Install pane is displayed to provide information about the Connector’s installation location and how much disk space is required for the installation. When you are ready, click the Install Now button.

    This pane reports which connector is being installed,
the directory location, and the amount of disk space required for the installation.
    Note –

    If you installed Core on the local machine, the Ready to Install pane will indicate that zero space is required to install the Connector. This situation occurs because the Core installation has already installed the Connector binaries. Because there are no additional binaries to install, no additional space is required.

    If you are installing the Connector on a machine other than where you installed Core, then the Ready to Install pane will indicate how much space is required to complete the Connector installation on the local machine.

    The Connector installation is accomplished in two steps:

    • An Installing pane is displayed, with a progress bar, while the program installs the binaries.

    • Next, the Component Configuration pane displays a progress bar. This step takes several minutes to complete.

      Note –

      If you did not close the Console before starting the installation, the following warning displays (Installing the Directory Server Connector). Click Reset in the Console to reload the Connector’s configuration settings.

      This pane reports which connector is being installed,
the directory location, and the amount of disk space required for the installation.

      When both steps are complete, an Installation Summary pane is displayed.

    Note –

    Directory Server plugin gets configured for preferred and secondary hosts (if any).

    Installation of Directory Server Plug-in
    Note –
    1. Clicking Yes configures the Directory Server plugin in all the hosts (preferred and secondary).

    2. Clicking No enables you to configure the plugin later using command line idsync dspluginconfig. For more information, see Appendix A, Using the Identity Synchronization for Windows Command Line Utilities.

  5. Click the Details button if you want to review the installation log.

    • On Solaris: Installation logs are written to /var/sadm/install/logs/

    • On Linux: Installation logs are written to /var/sadm/install/logs/

    • On Windows: Installation logs are written to the %TEMP% directory, which is usually a subdirectory of the Local Settings folder located underC:\Documents and Settings\Administrator

      Note –

      On some Windows systems (such as Windows 2000 Advanced Server), the Local Settings folder is a hidden folder.

      To view this folder and the Temp subdirectory, open your Windows Explorer and select Tools -> Folder Options from the menu bar. When the Folder Options dialog box is displayed, select the View tab and enable the Show Hidden Files option.

  6. Click Next to display the “To Do list” panel, which shows the list of successfully completed and pending steps.

    This panel reports which steps are finished and which
steps remain.
  7. When you are done with the panel, click Finished.

    After installing the Directory Server Connector, you can install other Connectors that you configured when you configured the resources (Chapter 8, Configuring Core Resources):
