DSEE Software Distributions

This information compares the different Directory Server Enterprise Edition software distributions available and is taken from the main DSEE 6.3 documentation at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-2763/install-distributions?a=view.

Figure 1–3 The Two Software Distributions

To install all software, get both distributions.

Java Enterprise System Distribution

This section introduces the Java Enterprise System distribution, which comes with the Java ES installer.

The Java ES installer offers a graphical wizard, a command-line interactive wizard, and also silent installation capabilities to add natively packaged software to your system. As this distribution is based on native packages, you must be root to perform the installation with the Java ES installer.

The Java ES installer provides a fresh installation of Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 on Solaris and Linux. To install Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 on Windows, see Installation Procedure Quick Reference in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 Installation Guide. Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 is not delivered on HP-UX.

All Java ES software can work together, relying on a common framework of basic components and of libraries. You can therefore install all the software products together on a single system.

The Java ES installation software also facilitates installation of shared components. The software integrates with the system, so you can configure directory services to restart automatically when the operating system reboots. With a native package based installation, you benefit from the package versioning and patching tools that are part of the operating system.

This guide does not describe all installation alternatives available using the Java ES installer. However, this guide addresses the key Java ES installer wizard screens related to Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.2 software installation. For detailed instructions on using all features of the Java ES installer, see the Java Enterprise System documentation at http://docs.sun.com/coll/1286.3.

Native Patches

This section introduces the native patches that enable you to upgrade Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 and 6.1 installations.

You must be root to do the installation using native patches. These patches are applied on the top of the existing Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 or 6.1 installation. Native patches contain all the components of Directory Server Enterprise Edition as in Java Enterprise System distribution but upgrade the only components that are already installed as a part of Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 or 6.1 installation. You cannot do fresh installation of any of the components in Directory Server Enterprise Edition using native patches.

You can install Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 on Windows by installing native patches on the top of Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 installation. The Java Enterprise System distribution does not provide fresh installation for Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 on Windows.

Zip Distribution

This section introduces the zip distribution, which provides the dsee_deploy(1M) command-line installer.

This distribution offers self-contained software that you can install anywhere on local disk where you have write permission. You can both install and administer zip distribution software as a non-root user.

As zip distribution software is self-contained, each software installation performed from the zip distribution is independent. You can therefore install software from multiple zip distribution versions on the same system. Your system administrator must manually configure the software that you install to restart when the operating system reboots.

Furthermore, with the zip distribution, you must keep careful track of what you have installed, and the patches you have applied.

Comparison of Java Enterprise System Distribution and Zip Distribution

This section identifies the software supported in each distribution.

Both the Java ES and zip distributions allow you to create and configure Directory Server and Directory Proxy Server instances as non-root.

Identity Synchronization for Windows and Directory Editor software are bundled with the zip distribution, but are not installed using the dsee_deploy command. This guide covers Identity Synchronization for Windows installation. See Part II, Installing Identity Synchronization for Windows, in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 Installation Guide.

This guide does not cover installation of Directory Editor software. If you plan to install Directory Editor software, read the installation instructions in the Sun Java System Directory Editor 1 2005Q1 Installation and Configuration Guide.
