When you deploy PingDirectoryProxy in a topology, you generally deploy them in pairs. These pairs have identical configurations except for their host name, port name, and possibly their location.

The following sections describe the setup tool in more detail, explaining how to install the first and subsequent proxies in your topology:

  1. To install a Directory Server, run the setup tool.
  2. To configure the server, run the create-initial-proxy-config tool.

    For more information, see Using the create-initial-proxy-config Tool.

  3. To clone the configuration, run the setup tool on subsequent servers and clone the configuration on a peer server.
