Configuring OpenDS with dsconfig

Like the Sun Java System Directory Server, the configuration in OpenDS is stored in an LDIF file rooted at "cn=config", and can be read and updated over LDAP. As of DSEE 6.0, the Directory Server also has a Web-based administration GUI, as well as a command-line utility named dsconf that can be used to manage the server configuration. For OpenDS, we don't yet have a widespread administration GUI, but starting with this week's build we have a new command-line tool named dsconfig that can be used to interact with the server configuration. On UNIX systems, you can find it at bin/dsconfig; on Windows, it's bat\\dsconfig.bat.

Matt Swift (who has done most of the development of the dsconfig tool, and the underlying administration framework) has written a document that describes the dsconfig utility and gives an overview of how to use it. You can find that on our documentation wiki at https://www.opends.org/wiki/page/ConfiguringOpenDSUsingTheDsconfigTool.

Note that the documentation page for this tool also includes a section at the bottom with some known issues and potential usability problems that we intend to fix in the near future. However, we would also appreciate any feedback that you might have (e.g., problems that you've encountered or suggestions for improvement). If you find anything, feel free to open a new issue in our issue tracker (https://opends.dev.java.net/servlets/ProjectIssues) or send an e-mail to dev@opends.dev.java.net.
