Last week-end all Sun products documentation got moved from docs.sun.com to Oracle.com domain, with new IDs. So all URLs and bookmarks have been “lost in translation” !
On this blog, I had numerous references to Sun directory product documentations, pointing to specific commands or chapters for configuring and managing the service… All are now redirecting to the main Oracle’s documentation page. :-(
But I managed to find the place where the Sun Directory Server documentation is listed, from iPlanet Directory Server 4.11 to the latest Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g : the Legacy Sun Identity Management Documentation. There are link for both the online and the PDF versions.
Pfew! I was afraid everything disappeared.
On a side note, classifying the so called “strategic” Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g in the legacy products seems to say a lot about its future !
My ex-colleague Eduardo Pelegri has been collecting and posting interesting data about the ex-Sun people and the Sun initiated open source projects, a year after the Sun-set. I find interesting to see how the Sun heritage is disseminating and creating a larger ecosystem of new companies.
