This section provides important information for users of iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 who are upgrading to the new Oracle Solaris 10 release.
Sun Java System Directory Server 5 2005Q1 replaces iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 that was integrated in the Solaris 9 Operating System. In Oracle Solaris 10 OS, this new Directory Server can be installed as part of the Sun Java Enterprise System.
Note - For information about the Sun Java System Directory Server 5 2005Q1, refer to the documentation for the Sun Java System at http://docs.sun.com.
Oracle Solaris 10 OS continues to support Directory Server 5.1. You might need to install Directory Server 5.1 under the following circumstances:
You need to recover Directory Server 5.1 data.
You want to migrate your data to Directory Server 5 2005Q1.
In the Oracle Solaris 10 release, you install the Directory Server 5.1 manually. Follow these steps:
Insert the Oracle Solaris 10 OS – 5 CD into your CD-ROM drive.
In a terminal window, install the Directory Server.
# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/Solaris_10/Product/ # pkgadd -d . IPLTnls IPLTnspr IPLTnss IPLTjss IPLTpldap \ IPLTdsr IPLTdsu IPLTadmin IPLTcons IPLTadcon IPLTdscon \ IPLTadman IPLTdsman
To install Simplified Chinese localization packages, issue the following additional command:
# pkgadd -d . IPLTcdsu IPLTcadmin IPLTccons IPLTcadcon \ IPLTcdscon IPLTcadman IPLTcdsman
To install Japanese localization packages, issue the following additional command:
# pkgadd -d . IPLTjdsu IPLTjadmin IPLTjcons IPLTjadcon \ IPLTjdscon IPLTjadman IPLTjdsman
After installation is complete, configure iPlanet Directory Server 5.1. Refer to Chapter 11, Sun ONE Directory Server Configuration, in System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (DNS, NIS, and LDAP) .
Caution - The database formats of the two Directory Server versions are incompatible. Thus, if you are a Directory Server 5.1 user, Sun recommends that you migrate your database to a database that is formatted for the Sun Java System Directory Server 5 2005Q1.
To perform a migration, both versions of the Directory Server must exist in the system that has been upgraded to the Oracle Solaris 10 OS. If you are a DS 5.1 user, but are using the compressed archive (.tar.gz) delivery format, you can skip immediately to the migration instructions in Step 2.
On a terminal window, check whether iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 packages are present in your system.
$ pkginfo | grep IPLT
If the following packages appear as output, then you can go to Step 2 to proceed with the migration. The output indicates that the iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 packages are in the system.
system IPLTadcon Administration Server Console system IPLTadman Administration Server Documentation system IPLTadmin Administration Server system IPLTcons Console Client Base system IPLTdscon Directory Server Console system IPLTdsman Directory Server Documentation system IPLTdsr Directory Server (root) system IPLTdsu Directory Server (usr) system IPLTjss Network Security Services for Java system IPLTnls Nationalization Languages and Localization Support system IPLTnspr Portable Runtime Interface system IPLTnss Network Security Services system IPLTpldap PerLDAP $
If the packages do not exist, then install the iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 packages first. Refer to the 4-step procedure in the preceding section Installing Directory Server 5.1. After installation is complete, go to Step 2 to proceed with the migration.
Migrate your iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 database to the current version. For instructions, refer to the documentation collection for the Sun Java System Directory Server at http://docs.sun.com/coll/DirectoryServer_05q1.
After migrating your data, make sure you continue to back up directory data in the same way as you backed up directory data before migration. Future disaster recovery might require the migrated database.
