Server information is stored in the configuration directory server.
This information is used by the console and administration server to
configure and manage your servers.* If you have already set up a
configuration directory server, you should register any servers you
set up or create with the configuration server.* To do so, the
following information about the configuration server is required: the
fully qualified host name of the form
<hostname>.<domainname>(e.g. hostname.example.com), the port number
(default 389), the suffix, the DN and password of a user having
permission to write the configuration information, usually the
configuration directory administrator, and if you are using security
(TLS/SSL).* If you are using TLS/SSL, specify the TLS/SSL (LDAPS) port
number (default 636) instead of the regular LDAP port number, and
provide the CA certificate (in PEM/ASCII format).
If you do not yet have a configuration directory server, enter 'No' to
be prompted to set up one.
Do you want to register this software with an existing
configuration directory server? [no]:
Please enter the administrator ID for the configuration directory
server.* This is the ID typically used to log in to the console.* You
will also be prompted for the password.

The standard directory server network port number is 389.* However, if
you are not logged as the superuser, or port 389 is in use, the

If you want to use port 389, make sure that you are logged in as the
superuser, that port 389 is not in use.

Each instance of a directory server requires a unique identifier.
This identifier is used to name the various
instance specific files and directories in the file system,
as well as for other uses as a server instance identifier.
