Today, Sun Microsystems released Sun Java Enterprise System 5. One of the components is Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0. (DSEE6).
Sun Java Directory Server Enterprise Edition (DSEE) comprises
- Directory Server
- Directory Proxy Server
- Directory Editor
- Identity Synchronization for Windows
- Directory Server Resource Kit
Here are snippets of what’s new in Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0.
- A browser based administration interface
- Command Line Interface (CLI) which you can use to execute almost any command that you execute using the console. New commands such as dsadm, dsconf etc.
- Servers can be managed in groups, thus you can stop and start; modify schema; etc and many other commands to several servers at once.
- Global lockout – password policies and failed login attempts are replicated to all replicated Directory servers servers.
- A virtual view to read and update data aggregated from several LDAP Directories, Microsoft Active Directory, text files and Database sources
- Unlimited multi-masters in a replicated environment. Compare that to only four masters in Sun Directory Server 5.2 sp4
- Significant performance improvements for static groups and access controll.
- Prioritized replication
Identity Synchronization for Windows
- Static group synchronization and account lockout/activation with Windows Active Directory
Directory Proxy Server
- Dynamic rule load balancing.
- Redirect operations to a specific server – for example send all password changes to one Directory server in your environment.
