Fixed In Version: 389-ds-base-
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Cause: Lack of centralized server scripts. Consequence: If there are several instances on the same system, then you have to use different scripts for each instance, instead of just using that one script. E.g. db2ldif Change: All of the instance specific scripts were moved to /usr/bin. There are still the instance specific scripts, but they are now wrapper scripts that simply point to the corresponding script in /usr/bin. "man" pages were also created for the all the scripts. Result: One script can be used to administer multiple instances on the same system.

Description Nathan Kinder 2013-03-06 18:15:34 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

Instead of having per-instance scripts in /usr/lib*/dirsrv/slapd-INSTANCE, like db2ldif, ldif2db, etc.  we should instead have them in /usr/sbin or /usr/bin.  They should accept the specific instance to work on as a command line argument/option, and if there is only one instance, they should just work on that one instance without requiring to have it specified.  Bonus points for giving the user a menu of instances and having the user choose which instance to work on.

moving all ON_QA bugs to MODIFIED in order to add them to the errata (can't add bugs in the ON_QA state to an errata).  When the errata is created, the bugs should be automatically moved back to ON_QA.

Test Plan :: ​https://wiki.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com/export/idmwiki/index.php/Centralize_instance_specific_and_Secure_protocols_for_scripts
Automation :: clu/cluUtil.sh

All test cases passed hence marking bug as VERIFIED.
