|Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Release Notes 11g Release 1 (188.8.131.52.0)|
This section lists the features that have been removed or deprecated in this release and also mentions the features or commands that will be removed in the next release:
SHA2 family password hashing can be used only for user data in a replicated topology where only ODSEE 11g R1 (184.108.40.206.0) servers are present. Older servers are incapable of managing the password because the hashing algorithm is not recognized by older servers. SHA2 hashing can be used for local, non-replicated users such as cn=directory manager type accounts.
The Directory Proxy Server Proactive Monitoring feature now uses the simplified filter (objectClass=*).
In the password policy, the DS5-compatible-mode interoperability mode is deprecated. In this version, you must use the DS6–mode interoperability mode.
Some version 5.2 commands are removed in ODSEE 11g Release 1 (220.127.116.11.0), as described in Command Line Changes in Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Upgrade and Migration Guide
The following legacy scripts have been replaced with the new commands:
For more information, see Command Line Changes in Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Upgrade and Migration Guide.
Before migrating a replicated server topology, review Chapter 7, Migrating a Replicated Topology, in Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Upgrade and Migration Guide.
When you create a ODSEE instance in a replicated topology, password policy is configured initially backwards-compatible to assist with migrating the topology. After upgrading, you change the compatibility mode to enable richer password policy configuration. ODSEE manages the conversion. For more information, see Migrating a Deployment to Directory Server 11g Release 1 (18.104.22.168.0) in Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Administration Guide. In a future release, the backwards-compatible password policy configuration might be removed.
When you create a ODSEE instance, support for the modify DN operation is disabled. After upgrading all the server instances in your replication topology, the modify DN operation can be replicated properly. At that point, you can enable support for the modify DN operation on each server instances. Use the dsconf set-server-prop moddn-enabled:on command for this purpose.
This feature is provided for version 5.2 compatibility.
The db-path suffix property (dsconf set-suffix-prop suffix-name db-path:/new/directory and dsconf create-suffix --db-path) is deprecated and might be removed in a future release. Use the db-path server property to store all the suffixes in a different directory than the instance directory.
Directory Server chaining is deprecated and might be removed in a future release. Chaining is not configurable through Directory Service Control Center, nor is chaining configurable through the new command line tools. Most deployments enabled by chaining are now enabled using features of Directory Proxy Server. For example, data distribution, global account lockout across an entire replication topology, and merging directory information trees can be done with Directory Proxy Server. For legacy applications that continue to rely on chaining, you can configure the chained suffix plug-in with the ldapmodify command to set attributes for chaining. The attributes are listed in dse.ldif(4).
Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (22.214.171.124.0) includes an update to Identity Synchronization for Windows. Identity Synchronization for Windows 6.0 SP1 is bundled with Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition.
Before upgrading Identity Synchronization for Windows, read Chapter 10, Migrating Identity Synchronization for Windows, in Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Upgrade and Migration Guide.
Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (126.96.36.199.0) does not provide any changes to Directory Server Resource Kit.
The LDAP utility manual pages on Sun Solaris systems do not document the version of the LDAP utilities ldapsearch, ldapmodify, ldapdelete, and ldapadd that are delivered with Directory Server Enterprise Edition. The utilities might no longer be delivered separately on Solaris systems, but instead might be integrated with the commands that are provided by the operating system in a future version. See Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Man Page Reference for the manual pages for the LDAP utilities.
