One of the strengths of the PingDirectory Server is the ease with which you can install a server instance using the setup tool.

To install a server instance, run the setup tool in one of the following modes:

Interactive command-line mode
Interactive command-line mode prompts for information during the installation process.

To start the installation in this mode, run the setup --cli command.

Non-interactive command-line mode
Non-interactive command-line mode is designed for setup scripts to automate installations or for command-line usage.

To start the installation in this mode, run setup with the --no-prompt option as well as the other arguments required to define the appropriate initial configuration.

Perform all installation and configuration steps while signed on to the system as the user or role under which the Directory Server runs.
