Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Guide for UNIX

ProcedureTo Configure Directory Server After a Configure Later Installation

  1. Start the configuration utility. For example:

    directoryserver -u 5.2 configure

    Follow the instructions on each screen.

    Note –

    On Linux, two commands are available, but only one works correctly. Be sure to use /opt/sun/sbin/directoryserver.

  2. Update the system configuration to enable core file generation.

    For example:

    coreadm -e proc-setid

    Note –

    If you have installed Directory Server to run as a user other than superuser, Directory Server might not be able to generate a core file during a crash. It is important that you allot enough space for core files, and that you allow Directory Server to generate core files during a crash.

  3. (Optional) Many command-line scripts written in Perl can read the bind password interactively (-w option). To enable this functionality, do the following:

    1. Install the Term::ReadKey Perl module, available separately from CPAN (

    2. Edit each Perl script to read the bind password interactively by uncommenting the appropriate lines.

      All other Perl script functionality remains available without the Term::ReadKey module.

  4. Verify the common server settings and update the settings as needed.

    Refer to Administration Server Configuration Information in Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Reference.

  5. If needed, configure Directory Server for use with the Sun Cluster software.

    Refer to Directory Server Data Service.

  6. If needed, configure Directory Server in 32-bit mode on a 64-bit Solaris SPARC platform as follows:

    1. Use the pkgrm command to remove the following 64–bit Directory Server packages:

      SUNWdsvhx SUNWdsvx

    2. Edit the /var/sadm/install/productregistry file, removing references to the SUNWdsvhx and SUNWdsvx packages.

    3. Configure Directory Server.
