Chapter 7. Directory Server in Red Hat Enterprise Linux

About Directory Server for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

This section describes changes in the main server component for Red Hat Directory Server - the 389-ds-base package, which includes the LDAP server itself and command line utilities and scripts for its administration. This package is part of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux base subscription channel and therefore available on all Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server systems due to Red Hat Identity Management components which depend on it.
Additional Red Hat Directory Server components, such as the Directory Server Console, are available in the rhel-x86_64-server-6-rhdirserv-9 additional subscription channel. A subscription to this channel is also required to obtain support for Red Hat Directory Server. Changes to the additional components in this channel are not described in this document.
Red Hat Directory Server version 9 is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. See https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-directory-server/get-started-v9 for information about getting started with Directory Server 9, and https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en/red-hat-directory-server/?version=9 for full documentation.
