Ping Identity distributes the Directory Server, Administrative Console, and LDAP SDK for Java in zip format. After unzipping the file, you can access the setup utility in the server root directory, located at PingDirectory . The Directory Server stores a full set of command-line tools for maintaining your system in the PingDirectory/bin directory for UNIX® or Linux® machines and the PingDirectory\bat directory for Microsoft® Windows® machines.

Prior to installing the directory server, read Chapter 2 Preparing Your Environment, which presents important information on setting up your machines. Chapter 3 Installing the Directory Server presents procedures to install a server instance using the setup utility. This utility can be run in one of the two available installation modes: interactive command-line, and non-interactive command-line. Chapter 4 Configuring the Directory Server provides procedures to modify the configuration of a server instance or a group of servers using the command-line tools and the Administrative Console.
