3.3 Leveraging an Existing eDirectory Setup

If you already have an eDirectory setup but want to install DSfW in your environment, it is recommended you utilize the existing eDirectory setup and install DSfW in a container in the existing eDirectory tree. This way you can utilise all the user information in the eDirectory container. This kind of setup is known as a name-mapped setup.

For more details on name-mapped setup, see Section 5.6.3, Installation Prerequisites for a Name-Mapped Setup and Section 4.2, Deploying DSfW in a Name-Mapped Setup
