1.3. Supported Methods to Configure Directory Server

You can configure Directory Server using:
  • the command-line utilities provided by Directory Server
  • the web console
  • LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF) statements sent to the server through an LDAP client

Important

The web console does not automatically display the latest settings if a user changes the configuration outside of the console's window. For example, if you change the configuration using the command line while the web console is open, the new settings are not automatically updated in the web console. This applies also if you change the configuration using the web console on a different computer. To work around the problem, manually refresh the web console in the browser if the configuration has been changed outside the console's window.
