I am working towards implementing IDM 4 into my environment. I found that on one of my servers, the driver had stopped without my knowledge. So I decided to write a bash script to check the status of the driver, restart it if needed, and email whenever the status of the driver changes.

Updated: Since the release of eDirectory 8.8.0 support for multiple instances of eDirectory on a single box has been available. Using the ndsconfig and especially the newer ndsmanage tool configuring multiple instances of eDirectory is also very easy to do. One feature that has been missing since that time has been the ability to start/stop multiple instances as easily as one can start/stop the first root-based eDirectory instance of a root-installed eDirectory during startup/shutdown. The time has come to overcome that.

For a while now I have wanted to see how many controls eDirectory really could handle, even if they were not supported. It should be mentioned loudly and clearly that as of eDirectory 8.8.5 some of these controls work but THEY ARE NOT SUPPORTED so if they do not work properly submit a bug or an enhancement but don’t expect a quick response. Also for some of these there are definite limitations with how they work. I’ll try to cover those as I go.
