Abstract

The 389-ds-base package, and several dependencies, have been updated in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3. These new packages provide additional functionality that was not available in the initial release of Red Hat Directory Server 9.0 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 and 6.3 both include the core 389-ds-base package as part of its distribution. This package provides the central Directory Server functionality and comprises the Directory Server instance and associated tools. Red Hat Directory Server 9.0.1 includes additional functionality on top of the 389-ds-base through the Directory Server Console and Admin Server and other supporting tools.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 includes enhancements to the 389-ds-base package which introduce some extended functionality. When the underlying operating system is upgraded to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3, any installed Directory Server instance will receive this new functionality because of the upgraded 389-ds-base package.
This document covers the enhancements included in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 update. Any Directory Server 9.0.1 instances running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0, 6.1, or 6.2 will not have this enhanced functionality.
