To begin with, we have the PingDirectory Server installation .zip file. In this example, we plan to use SSL security, so we also have a key store certificate database and a .pin file that contains the private key password for the key store. The key store files are only necessary when using SSL or StartTLS.

In this deployment scenario, the key store database is assumed to be a Java KeyStore (JKS), which can be created by the keytool program.

The PingDirectory directory contains the following.

root@proxy-east-01: ls
ExampleKeystore.jks   ExampleTruststore.jks

The ExampleKeystore.jks key store file contains the private key entry for the server certificate with the alias server-cert. The server certificate, certificate authority (CA), and intermediate signing certificates are all contained in the ExampleTruststore.jks file. The password for ExampleKeystore.jks is defined in clear text in the corresponding .pin file, though the name of the file need not match as it does in this example. The private key password in this example is the same as the password defined for the ExampleKeystore.jks key store.

  1. Extract the compressed archive file into the PingDirectory directory and move to this directory.
    root@proxy-east-01: unzip -q PingDirectory-<version>
    root@proxy-east-01: cd PingDirectory
  2. Copy the key store and .pin files into the config directory.
    root@proxy-east01: cp ../*Keystore* config/ 
    root@proxy-east01: cp ../*Truststore* config/
  3. Install the first proxy server by running the setup tool on
    root@proxy-east01: ./setup --no-prompt --acceptLicense \ 
    --ldapPort 389 --rootUserPassword pass \ 
    --aggressiveJVMTuning --maxHeapSize 1g \ 
    --enableStartTLS --ldapsPort 636 \    
    --useJavaKeystore config/ExampleKeystore.jks \ 
    --keyStorePasswordFile config/ \ 
    --certNickname server-cert \ 
    --useJavaTrustStore config/ExampleTruststore.jks

    New key store password files are created in config/ The original file, config/, is no longer needed. If you are not using SSL or StartTLS, then the SSL arguments are not necessary.

    root@proxy-east01: ./setup --no-prompt --acceptLicense \ 
    --ldapPort 389 --rootUserPassword pass \ 
    --aggressiveJVMTuning --maxHeapSize 1g

After installing the Directory Server, you can configure it using the create-initial-proxy-config tool as presented in Configuring the first Directory Proxy Server.
