Download the Directory Server Enterprise Edition zip distribution binaries as specified in Getting the Software in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Release Notes.
After this operation is complete, you should have one of the following files in your temporary space, for example, /var/tmp/dsee:
Type the following commands to install the Directory Server Enterprise Edition software.
# mkdir -p install-path # cd /var/tmp/dsee # gunzip DSEE.7.0.xxx-zip.tar.gz # tar xf DSEE.7.0.xxx-zip.tar # unzip -qq sun-dsee7.zip -d install-path
You can remove /var/tmp/dsee contents now.
The install-path directory is where all the software elements are placed. Minimum 1 Gb space is required.
You are now ready to start working with the Directory Server Enterprise Edition installation.
Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 depends on the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package. If your computer does not have Visual C++ 2008 installed, you must install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86). This package is available from the Microsoft Download Center at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads (Product family: Developer tools).
To use AES_256 with JavaTM technology based applications and utilities, you must download the JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp and install them.
If you are already using version 6 or 5.2, and want to use the same legacy instances with the version 7.0 installation, refer to Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Upgrade and Migration Guide.
