Administrators can configure changes locally or remotely:

  • On a single server
  • On all servers in a server group

Each server configuration is stored as a flat file (LDIF) that can be accessed under the cn=config branch of the directory information tree (DIT). Administrators can tune the configuration and perform maintenance functions over LDAP using a suite of command-line tools or an administrative console (for configuration and monitoring). The PingDirectory server provides plugins to extend the functionality of its components.
