Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX

Directory Server Only Example

With Directory Server Enterprise Edition, you can install Directory Server Core, Directory Proxy Server, and the tools for administering your directory service remotely. Directory Server provides LDAP and DSML directory services, managing client access to your directory database. Directory Proxy Server offers proxy LDAP service with configurable load balancing and routing. Directory Proxy Server also enables data distribution for high scalability, and virtual directory access to both LDAP and relational databases. Remote administration tools include the web based Directory Service Control Center, and command line remote configuration tools.

In production deployments, you typically deploy each Directory Server Enterprise Edition component on a different host. Before deploying Directory Server Enterprise Edition software in production, read the Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Deployment Planning Guide.

This example provides guidelines for installing Directory Server on a single host.
