SUMMARY: Setting Up iPlanet Directory 5.1

From: Crist Clark <>

Thanks to a number of people who simply pointed me to,

	/usr/sbin/directoryserver setup

And the directoryserver(1M) manpage. It'd be nice if the iPlanet
manuals would mention that. However, once I got going with that, I
have to say it was pretty easy to setup.

One other small issue I ran into. I ended up configuring iPlanet LDAP
on two servers. The one with patch 113859-02 had troubles starting up
the administration server. A plugin in the magnus.conf caused dynamic
linking problems. I deleted the plugin since it wasn't present in the
other magnus.conf and the admin server on that one seemed to be OK.
The admin server would then start up without a problem. The library
it couldn't find was There are a number of those sprinkled
around the system. I probably could have fixed this by getting the
right hints in LD_LIBRARY_PATH, but rather than try to figure out
which one I should use, I just dropped the plugin.
