4.4. Registering Servers Using register-ds-admin.pl

Each instance of Directory Server is, or can be, registered with another Configuration Directory Server instance and with an Administration Server instance. This registration can be changed using the register-ds-admin.pl script.

4.4.1. register-ds-admin.pl Options

Running register-ds-admin.pl creates a default instance of the Administration Server and Configuration Directory Server if they do not already exist, then registers any existing Directory Servers with the Configuration Directory Server.
For the list of options supported by register-ds-admin, see the utility's description in the Red Hat Directory Server Configuration, Command, and File Reference.

4.4.2. Registering an Existing Directory Server Instance with the Configuration Directory Server

The Configuration Directory Server uses the o=NetscapeRoot database to store information about the Directory Servers and Administration Servers in your network. This is used by the Console and the Administration Servers. This database can belong to a separate Directory Server instance, called the Configuration Directory Server. There is an option when an instance is first set up to register it with a Configuration Directory Server. It is possible to register an existing Directory Server instance with a Configuration Directory Server using the register-ds-admin.pl script.
# register-ds-admin.pl

Important

Running register-ds-admin.pl creates a default instance of the Administration Server and Configuration Directory Server if they do not already exist, then registers any existing Directory Servers with the Configuration Directory Server.
