  4. Ensure that the Directory Server starts at every boot.

    1. Add an init.d script.

      In the following example, change the SERVER_ROOT and SERVER_INSTANCE variables to match your installation.

      case "$1" in
      echo "Usage: $0 { start | stop }"
      exit 1
      exit 0
    2. Link the init.d script to the rc2.d directory.

      /etc/init.d/ \

    1. Examine your installation directory.

      A subdirectory that is named slapd-server-hostname must exist.

    2. Start the Directory Server.

      # installation-directory/slapd-server-hostname/restart-slapd
    3. Verify that the slapd process exists.

      # ps -ef | grep slapd
      ./ns-slapd -D installation-directory/slapd-server-instance -i
