3.1. The Directory Server Setup Modes
You can set up your Directory Server instance using the different modes listed below:
- Uses defaults values for most settings. See, Section 3.4, “Express Setup”.Use this mode for evaluation and testing.
- A combination of common-used defaults and custom settings. See, Section 3.5, “Typical Setup”.Use this mode for production installations if you do not want to import custom or sample data during the installation.
- Based on the
Typicalmode, but additionally enables you to install the Directory Server sample data and to import custom data during the setup. See, Section 3.6, “Custom Setup”.
- Enables the administrator to pass command-line arguments to the
setup-ds-admin.plscript or to use a file with custom settings. Select this installation method to deploy, for example, a large number of Directory Server instances. See, Section 4.6.1, “Silent Setup for Directory Server and Administration Server”.
