DSEE 6.3 Windows Native Package Patch Released
By klemay on Jun 23, 2008
We have just released the windows native (MSI) patch for Directory Server Enterprise Edition (DSEE) 6.3. This patch was originally delayed due to some issues concerning the patching process on Windows. These have now been resolved and you can download the patch from here: http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-21-125311-07-1
This patch is only for installations of DSEE that were installed on Windows 2000 or 2003 using the Jave Enterprise System installer. If you do not have DSEE 6.3 already installed on this system you will need to download the DSEE 6.0 full release for Windows and then apply this patch after you have installed it. You can download the full DSEEE 6.0 Windows Native MSI installation bundle from the following location: Directory Server EE 6.0 - java_es-5-identsuite-ga-windows-x86.zip - Part of Identity Management Suite, Multi-language (DS/DPS/Console)
NOTE: This download is actually part of the Sun Identity Suite. When you download this you can then run the installer and select to install only the Directory Server Enterprise Edition components.
Another option if you do not have DSEE already installed is to download the 'Compressed Archive" version of the software for Windows which does not use the MSI installer model and requires an App Server (either Tomcat or Sun Java App Server) to run the management console. You can download this version of the product from: Directory Server EE 6.3 - Zip Distribution, Multi Language, (DS/DPS/DE/ISW/DSRK). This a full installation of DSEE 6.3 so there is no need to install DSEE 6.0 first.
To understand the difference between the Native Package distribution and the Compressed Archive distribution see the documentation at: http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-2763/install-distributions?a=view
