NAME
       idsconfig  -  prepare an	iPlanet	Directory Server (iDS) to be populated
       with data and serve LDAP	clients

SYNOPSIS
	/usr/lib/ldap/idsconfig	[-v] [-i input_configfile] [-o	output_config-
       file]

DESCRIPTION
       Use the idsconfig tool to set up	an iPlanet Directory Server (iDS). You
       can specify the input configuration file	with the -i option on the com-
       mand  line. Alternatively, the tool will	prompt the user	for configura-
       tion information. The input configuration  file is created by idsconfig
       with the	-o option on a previous	run.

       The first time a	server is set up, the user is prompted for all the re-
       quired information.  Future installations on that machine can  use  the
       configuration  file  previously generated by idsconfig using the	-o op-
       tion.

       The output configuration	file contains  the  directory  administrator's
       password	 in clear text.	Thus, if you are creating an output configura-
       tion file, take appropriate security precautions.

       You should back up the directory	server's configuration and data	 prior
       to running this command.

OPTIONS
       -i input_configfile
	     Specify  the  file	 name  for idsconfig to	use as a configuration
	     file.  This file will be read by idsconfig, and  the  values   in
	     the  file	will be	used to	configure the server.  Do not manually
	     edit input_configfile. The	 input_configfile  is  only  partially
	     validated,	 as  idsconfig	assumes	that the file was created by a
	     previous invocation of the	command.

       -o output_configfile
	     Create a configuration file.

       -v    Verbose output.

OPERANDS
       The following operands are supported:

       input_configfile
	     Name of configuration file	for idsconfig to use.

       output_configfile
	     Configuration file	created	by idsconfig.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1: Prompting the	User for Input

       In the following	example, the user is prompted for information  to  set
       up iDS.

       example#	idsconfig

       Example 2: Creating an Output Configuration File

       In  the	following example, the user is prompted	for information	to set
       up iDS, and an output configuration file,  config.1,  is	 created  when
       completed.

       example#	idsconfig -o config.1

       Example 3: Setting up iDS Using the Specified Configuration File

       In  the	following example, iDS is set up by using the values specified
       in the configuration file, config.1. The	verbose	mode is	specified,  so
       detailed	information will print to the screen.

       example#	idsconfig -v -i	config.1

EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

       0     Successful	completion.

       >0    An	error occurred.
