System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (DNS, NIS, and LDAP)

Running idsconfig


Note - You do not need special rights to run idsconfig, nor do you need to be an LDAP naming client. Remember to create a checklist as mentioned in Creating a Checklist Based on Your Server Installation in preparation for running idsconfig. You do not have to run idsconfig from a server or an LDAP naming service client machine. You can run idsconfig from any Solaris machine on the network.



Caution - idsconfig sends the Directory Manager's password in the clear. If you do not want this to happen, you must run idsconfig on the directory server itself, not on a client.


How to Configure Sun Java System Directory Server Using idsconfig

  1. Make sure the target Sun Java System Directory Server is up and running.
  2. Run idsconfig.
    # /usr/lib/ldap/idsconfig

    Refer to Example 11-1 for an example run of idsconfig using the definitions listed in the server and client checklists at the beginning of this chapter in Creating a Checklist Based on Your Server Installation.

  3. Answer the questions when prompted.

    Note that 'no' [n] is the default user input. If you need clarification on any given question, type

    h

    and a brief help paragraph will appear.

    After idsconfig has completed the setup of the directory, you need to run the specified commands on the server before the server setup is complete and the server is ready to serve clients.

Example idsconfig Setup

This section provides an example of a simple idsconfig setup, without modifying many of the defaults. The most complicated method of modifying client profiles is by creating SSDs. Refer to Using Service Search Descriptors to Modify Client Access to Various Services for a detailed discussion.

A carriage return sign after the prompt means that you are accepting the [default] by hitting enter.


Note - Any parameters left blank in the summary screen will not be set up.


After idsconfig has completed the setup of the directory, you need to run the specified commands on the server before the server setup is complete and the server is ready to serve clients.

Example 11-1 Running idsconfig for the Example, Inc. Network
# usr/lib/ldap/idsconfig
It is strongly recommended that you BACKUP the directory server
before running idsconfig.

Hit Ctrl-C at any time before the final confirmation to exit.

Note: idsconfig has created entries for VLV indexes.  Use the
      directoryserver(1m) script on myserver to stop
      the server and then enter the following vlvindex
      sub-commands to create the actual VLV indexes:

  directoryserver -s myserver vlvindex -n userRoot -T west.example.com.getgrent
