Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.1 Evaluation Guide

Non-Root Installation

Directory Server allows you to install the DSEE components as a non-root user. This non-root installation is possible with the zip distribution. You can also install the Directory Service Control Center as a non-root user using the WAR file.

Operating system-specific packaging formats, such as SVR4 for Solaris and rpm for Linux, require installation as a privileged user.
