As the intended user that will run OpenDS: 1. Download OpenDS -- http://www.opends.org 2. unzip the zip file -- it will create an OpenDS-VERSION subdirectory will all the files (you can rename / move this if you want, but I recommend doing this prior to doing the rest of the steps). I will call the path to the OpenDS files $OPENDS (i.e. $OPENDS/bin, $OPENDS/setup, etc are all valid paths) 3. export PATH=$PATH:$OPENDS/bin (the scripts assume this for when they call $OPENDS/bin/dsconfig and such) 4. If a java version other than /bin/java needs to be used (/bin/java -version will display the version), export OPENDS_JAVA_HOME=/path/to/directory/with/correct/java/bin (i.e. export OPENDS_JAVA_HOME=/usr/jdk/jdk1.6.0_14) 5. cd $OPENDS; ./setup There is both a text based as well as GUI based installer (based on if $DISPLAY is set and reachable)
the other think we ust set : hostname and ldap data must be same..
