The Directory Server provides an administration and configuration framework capable of managing stand-alone servers, server groups, and highly-available deployments that include multiple redundant server instances.
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 Directory Server provides plugins to extend the functionality of its components.
