This section describes the behavioral changes that were made in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0.
The Directory Server Enterprise Edition product layout changed as follows:
All commands are available in install-path/dsee7/bin.
The plug-ins are available in install-path/dsee7/lib.
For a complete list of file locations, see Software Layout for Directory Server Enterprise Edition in Oracle Fusion Middleware Reference for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition.
Starting with Directory Server 7.0, the export process (dsadm export) always places the Replica Update Vector (RUV) as the last entry in the exported LDIF file.
Directory Server loads the libraries for Sun Microsystems plug-ins from the path where the software is installed. The libraries are no longer loaded from the path mentioned in the LDIF.
A new threading model improves import performance on multi-core machines.
If an import is multi-pass, merging of the indexes happens in parallel if there is enough memory for holding the index and its temporary files. The parallel merging of indexes results in improved performance.
When a search operation returns attributes whose syntax requires binary transfer, it appends the ;binary qualifier to the attribute name. To disable compliance with RFC 4522, set the compat-flag property to no-rfc4522.
New in Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1).
LDAP's RFC 4511 states that an "and" filter choice evaluates to TRUE if all its constituent (SET OF) filters evaluate to TRUE. In practice, the result for an "and" filter choice is the set of entries that match each and every constituent filter applied on its own.
In previous versions of Directory Server, filters of the form (&(attr>=v1)(attr<=v2)) were interpreted as entries with values in the range v1...v2. This interpretation is too restrictive when the attribute is multi-valued, because an entry might have values that match both constituent filters but the values themselves might be smaller than v1 and bigger than v2.
The Directory Server now implements the RFC 4511 behavior by default, unless compat-flag is set to no-rfc4511.
This sections describes changes in the behavior of administrative commands.
The dsadm and dpadm commands provide the new list-running-instances and stop-running-instances options for listing and stopping locally running servers.
The dsadm command also provides additional options for managing certificates, --sigalg, --phone, --email, and --dns described in dsadm(1M) .
The dpadm set-flags command supports two new flags,jvm-path and server-umask, described in dpadm(1M).
Several commands were available in previous versions of Directory Server Enterprise Edition but whose functions are now provided by other commands, as described in Command Line Changes in Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade and Migration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition
Some commands were removed from Directory Server Enterprise Edition, as described in Command Line Changes in Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade and Migration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition.
A binary backup modifies the backup files running a database recovery and flushes backup transaction logs to the backup databases. To leave the backup as is, use the --flags no-recovery option.
Re-indexing is performed more efficiently, reusing some recent import techniques and speed improvements.
The dsconf info command reports which attributes need to be re-indexed (for example, after a configuration change).
The root DSE contains the list of supported ciphers as reported by the security library. In release 7.0, the root DSE also contains the ciphers that are available for SSL negotiation under the enabledSSLCiphers attribute, and it is by default a subset of all the supported ciphers.
