idsconfig - prepare an iPlanet Directory Server (iDS) to  be
     populated with data and serve LDAP clients


      /usr/lib/ldap/idsconfig  [-v]  [-i  input_configfile]   [-o


     Use the idsconfig tool to set up an iPlanet Directory Server
     (iDS). You can specify the input configuration file with the
     -i option on the command line. Alternatively, the tool  will
     prompt  the  user  for  configuration information. The input
     configuration  file is created  by  idsconfig  with  the  -o
     option on a previous run.

     The first time a server is set up, the user is prompted  for
     all  the required information.  Future installations on that
     machine can use the configuration file previously  generated
     by idsconfig using the -o option.

     The  output  configuration  file  contains   the   directory
     administrator's  password  in  clear  text. Thus, if you are
     creating an  output  configuration  file,  take  appropriate
     security precautions.

     You should back up the directory server's configuration  and
     data prior to running this command.


     The following options are supported:

     -i input_configfile
           Specify the file name for idsconfig to use as a confi-
           guration  file.   This file will be read by idsconfig,
           and the values  in the file will be used to  configure
           the  server.   Do  not manually edit input_configfile.
           The input_configfile is only partially  validated,  as
           idsconfig  assumes that the file was created by a pre-
           vious invocation of the command.

     -o output_configfile
           Create a configuration file.

     -v    Verbose output.


     The following operands are supported:

           Name of configuration file for idsconfig to use.

           Configuration file created by idsconfig.


     Example 1: Prompting the User for Input

     In the following example, the user is prompted for  informa-
     tion to set up iDS.

     example# idsconfig

     Example 2: Creating an Output Configuration File

     In the following example, the user is prompted for  informa-
     tion  to  set up iDS, and an output configuration file, con-
     fig.1, is created when completed.

     example# idsconfig -o config.1

     Example 3: Setting up iDS Using the Specified  Configuration

     In the following example, iDS is set up by using the  values
     specified  in  the configuration file, config.1. The verbose
     mode is specified, so detailed information will print to the

     example# idsconfig -v -i config.1


     The following exit values are returned:

     0     Successful completion.

     >0    An error occurred.
