This introductory course is for system or network administrators who are responsible for system administration of IBM Tivoli Directory Server. If you need advance skills, you should also take course IBM Tivoli Directory Server 6.3 Advanced Deployment (TW233GB)(8W233GB)
This course covers the configuration and administration of IBM Tivoli Directory Server Version 6.3, which provides an LDAP client and server infrastructure. Learn basic LDAP concepts, install the directory server, and configure directory server instances. During hands-on labs you load a sample database and manage directory data using the Web Administration Tool and command-line tools. You then secure directory data using ACLs and SSL, configure a proxy server, and set up replication. Problem determination and performance tools are also covered. This course is also available as an instructor-led online offering. See course 8W083G for details.
