Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Guide

1.5.2 LDAP Provisioning Tools

Sun LDAP Schema 1 users and groups can be provisioned using the LDAP Directory tools (Schema 2 is not supported).

ProcedureTo Install Schema 1 LDAP Provisioning Tools

  1. If Directory Server is not already installed, be sure to install and configure it.

    For more information, refer to the Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX.

  2. Configure Access Manager to recognize data in your Directory Server.

    Before Access Manager can recognize the data in your LDAP directory, you must add special object classes to entries for all organizations, groups and users that will be managed by Access Manager. If you have not done this already, do it before you start provisioning new accounts. Sample scripts are bundled in the Access Manager product to help you automatically add these object classes to your directory. For more information on these post-installation steps, see the Sun Java System Access Manager Migration Guide.

  3. Install and configure Messaging Server with help from this guide.

    Messaging Server will detect which Sun Java System LDAP Schema you are using, depending on whether or not Access Manager is installed.

  4. Install and configure Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 to enable mail filtering in Messenger Express.

    For more information on enabling mail filtering, see 1.9 Configuring Messenger Express and Communications Express Mail Filters.

    Though mail filtering is not a provisioning tool, its functionality existed in the previous GUI version of Delegated Administrator for Messaging.

  5. Refer to the Sun Java System Messaging Server documentation to perform LDAP provisioning.

    For Sun LDAP Schema 1 LDAP provisioning, use the iPlanet Messaging Server 5.2 Provisioning Guide and Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Schema Reference. The Schema Reference contains object classes and attributes for both Sun LDAP Schema 1 and v.2.
