Who Should Use This Book

This book is intended for administrators who want to deploy Oracle Unified Directory or administer and existing deployment.

Before You Start

Oracle Unified Directory includes a number of command-line utilities that can be used to interact with the directory server. Some of the utilities are administrative commands for managing the directory server, and others are used to configure the proxy component.

This document describes all of the commands that are provided with Oracle Unified Directory 11g Release 1 (11.1.1). Not all of these commands are supported for use with the Oracle Unified Directory proxy. Similarly, a number of commands are specific to the proxy and should not be used to configure the directory server.


Caution - If you use unsupported commands, your server may not work as expected and will no longer be supported.
