Introduction to LDAP Naming Services (Overview/Reference)

The LDAP chapters describe how to set up a Solaris LDAP naming services client to work with Sun Java System Directory Server (formerly Sun ONE Directory Server). However, while using the Sun Java System Directory Server is recommended, it is not required. A brief description of generic directory server requirements appears in Chapter 14, LDAP General Reference (Reference).

Note - A directory server is not necessarily an LDAP server. However, in the context of these chapters, the term “directory server” is synonymous with “LDAP server.”
