.Directory Server introduces new command-line utilities to manage instances Red Hat Directory Server 11.0 introduces the `dscreate`, `dsconf`, and `dsctl` utilities. These utilities simplify managing Directory Server using the command line. For example, you can now use a command with parameters to configure a feature instead of sending complex LDIF statements to the server. The following is an overview of the purpose of each utility: * Use the `dscreate` utility to create new Directory Server instances using the interactive mode or an INF file. Note that the INF file format is different from the one the installer used in previous Directory Server versions. * Use the `dsconf` utility to manage Directory Server instances during run time. For example, use `dsconf` to: ** Configure settings in the `cn=config` entry ** Configure plug-ins ** Configure replication ** Back up and restore an instance * Use the `dsctl` utility to manage Directory Server instances while they are offline. For example, use `dsctl` to: ** Start and stop an instance ** Re-index the server database ** Back up and restore an instance These utilities replace the Perl and shell scripts marked as deprecated in Directory Server 10. The scripts are still available in the unsupported `389-ds-base-legacy-tools` package, however Red Hat only supports managing Directory Server using the new utilities. Note that configuring Directory Server using LDIF statements is still supported, but Red Hat recommends using the utilities. For further details about using the utilities, see the link:https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_directory_server/11/[Red Hat Directory Server 11 Documentation].
