Running dsconfig in interactive command-line mode provides a user-friendly, menu-driven interface for accessing and configuring the PingDirectory server.

  1. To start dsconfig in interactive command-line mode, invoke the dsconfig script without any arguments.
    You are prompted for connection and authentication information to the PingDirectoryProxy server, and then a menu displays the available operation types.
  2. To accept the default values, press Enter.

    In some cases, a default value is provided in square brackets. For example, [389] indicates that the default value for that field is port 389.

  3. To skip the connection and authentication prompts, provide the connection and authentication information using the command-line options of dsconfig.
