Evaluation Objectives

By the end of this evaluation you will have:

  1. Become familiar with the terminology of some of the major Directory concepts
  2. Created a Directory Server
  3. Bulk-loaded data into the Directory from one of the sample LDIF files shipped with M-Vault
  4. Added, modified and deleted entries in the Directory

You'll use two Isode Management tools to achieve these objectives, both of which are shipped and installed with M-Vault:

  • MVC (M-Vault Console): Used to configure and manage the Directory service.
  • Sodium (Secure Open Data, Identity and User Manager): Used to manage user information in the Directory such as entries for people or organizational units.

Installation instructions are given on the platform-specific download pages. The Schema Design Guide will show you how to create your own schema in the Isode M-Vault Directory server in a test/evaluation environment.
