Ping Identity distributes the PingDirectory Server, administrative console, and LDAP SDK for Java in .zip format. After extracting the file, you can access the setup utility in the server root directory, located at PingDirectory.

Before installing the PingDirectory Server, see Prepare your environment for important information on setting up your machines. See Installing PingDirectory Server for information on installing a server instance using the setup utility. You can run this utility in either interactive command-line or non-interactive command-line. For information on modifying the configuration of a server instance or a group of servers using the command-line tools and the administrative console, see Configuring the Server.
