|Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Unified Directory 11g Release 1 (11.1.1)|
The directory server is designed for easy configuration. The topics in this section assume that you have already installed the software, as described in Chapter 2, Installing the Software.
You can set up the directory server in two ways:
Graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI install uses a Java-based graphical installer that enables you to set up the directory server, load it with data, and get it running in very little time.
The installer asks some basic questions about the server configuration and then gives you the choice of leaving your database empty, loading the server with data from your own LDIF or loading the server with automatically generated sample data. The installer also enables you to configure security and replication, and, optionally, to start the server when the configuration is complete.
Command-line interface (CLI). The command-line install is either interactive, or non-interactive. In a non-interactive installation, you can set up the server without user intervention. In interactive mode, you are prompted for the required information before the configuration begins.
