DSEE 6.3 Released

We have just released the latest update in the Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.x product line.  

This patch release brings:

  • Improved performance for some specific deployments. For example, deletion of a suborganization is now faster.

  • Support for the SuSE 10 operating system. See Operating System Requirements for details.

  • Support for HP-UX 11.23 (PA-RISC). See Operating System Requirements for details.

  • Increased flexibility and security for deployments, with the Directory Service Control Center registry allowing port change and listening on addresses defined by an IP address.

  • Reduced disk space used, by purging replication metadata using a new purge-csn option in the dsadm command.

  • Improved interoperability with other products through the Directory Proxy Server, with improved LDAP control support.

  • The Directory Proxy Server allows bind operations to multiple data sources including Active Directory and to Sun Java System Directory Server. Bad password attempts now block users from multiple data sources, increasing security.

  • Install the ZIP distribution as any user on Windows.

You can download Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 software from the following location.
