Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Directory Server

3.6. Custom Setup

This setup mode is based on the Typical Setup. For details, see Section 3.5, “Typical Setup”. Additionally, this mode enables you to perform the following actions:
  • Install the Directory Server sample data:
    Do you want to install the sample entries? [no]:
    The sample data is imported to a separate LDAP suffix and does not interfere with the normal operation of the Directory Server. Use this option, for example, if you are evaluating Red Hat Directory Server.
  • Import data from an LDIF file:
    Type the full path and filename, the word suggest, or the word none [suggest]:
    To import:
    • data from an LDIF-formatted file, enter the full path to the file.


      If the data to import requires a custom schema, perform a silent installation and use the SchemaFile directive in the *.inf file to specify additional schema files.
    • common container entries, such as ou=People, enter the suggest option.
    • no data, enter none.


    The directory server user account must be able to read the import file.
