Now here is something interesting.
First, here are the files installed on running
yum install 389-ds-base:
389-ds-base-libs-220.127.116.11-1.el5.x86_64 db4-utils-4.3.29-10.el5_5.2.x86_64 mozldap-tools-6.0.5-1.el5.x86_64 cyrus-sasl-gssapi-2.1.22-5.el5_4.3.x86_64 389-ds-base-18.104.22.168-1.el5.x86_64
And here are the results from running
/usr/sbin/setup-ds.pl for the first time:
[root@myhost ~]# setup-ds.pl ============================================================================== This program will set up the 389 Directory Server. It is recommended that you have "root" privilege to set up the software. Tips for using this program: - Press "Enter" to choose the default and go to the next screen - Type "Control-B" or the word "back" then "Enter" to go back to the previous screen - Type "Control-C" to cancel the setup program Would you like to continue with set up? [yes]: ============================================================================== Your system has been scanned for potential problems, missing patches, etc. The following output is a report of the items found that need to be addressed before running this software in a production environment. 389 Directory Server system tuning analysis version 10-AUGUST-2007. NOTICE : System is x86_64-unknown-linux2.6.18-238.12.1.el5.centos.plus (2 processors). NOTICE : The net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_time is set to 7200000 milliseconds (120 minutes). This may cause temporary server congestion from lost client connections. Would you like to continue? [yes]: ============================================================================== Choose a setup type: 1. Express Allows you to quickly set up the servers using the most common options and pre-defined defaults. Useful for quick evaluation of the products. 2. Typical Allows you to specify common defaults and options. 3. Custom Allows you to specify more advanced options. This is recommended for experienced server administrators only. To accept the default shown in brackets, press the Enter key. Choose a setup type : ============================================================================== Enter the fully qualified domain name of the computer on which you're setting up server software. Using the form <hostname>.<domainname> Example: eros.example.com. To accept the default shown in brackets, press the Enter key. Warning: This step may take a few minutes if your DNS servers can not be reached or if DNS is not configured correctly. If you would rather not wait, hit Ctrl-C and run this program again with the following command line option to specify the hostname: General.FullMachineName=your.hostname.domain.name Computer name [myhost.example.com]: ============================================================================== The server must run as a specific user in a specific group. It is strongly recommended that this user should have no privileges on the computer (i.e. a non-root user). The setup procedure will give this user/group some permissions in specific paths/files to perform server-specific operations. If you have not yet created a user and group for the server, create this user and group using your native operating system utilities. System User [nobody]: dirsrv System Group [nobody]: dirsrv ============================================================================== The standard directory server network port number is 389. However, if you are not logged as the superuser, or port 389 is in use, the default value will be a random unused port number greater than 1024. If you want to use port 389, make sure that you are logged in as the superuser, that port 389 is not in use. Directory server network port : 1389 ============================================================================== Each instance of a directory server requires a unique identifier. This identifier is used to name the various instance specific files and directories in the file system, as well as for other uses as a server instance identifier. Directory server identifier [philx]: myhost-user ============================================================================== The suffix is the root of your directory tree. The suffix must be a valid DN. It is recommended that you use the dc=domaincomponent suffix convention. For example, if your domain is example.com, you should use dc=example,dc=com for your suffix. Setup will create this initial suffix for you, but you may have more than one suffix. Use the directory server utilities to create additional suffixes. Suffix [dc=example, dc=com]: ============================================================================== Certain directory server operations require an administrative user. This user is referred to as the Directory Manager and typically has a bind Distinguished Name (DN) of cn=Directory Manager. You will also be prompted for the password for this user. The password must be at least 8 characters long, and contain no spaces. Press Control-B or type the word "back", then Enter to back up and start over. Directory Manager DN [cn=Directory Manager]: Password: Password (confirm): web2ldap homedir /opt/web2ldap or its parent directory conflicts with a defined context in /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts, /usr/sbin/genhomedircon will not create a new context. This usually indicates an incorrectly defined system account. If it is a system account please make sure its login shell is /sbin/nologin. Your new DS instance 'myhost-user' was successfully created. Exiting . . . Log file is '/tmp/setup3DcAOs.log' You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root
