dspluginhelperd(8)					    BSD System Manager's Manual 					dspluginhelperd(8)

NAME
dspluginhelperd -- support daemon for legacy DirectoryService plugins SYNOPSIS
dspluginhelperd [-v] DESCRIPTION
DirectoryService has been replaced by opendirectoryd(8). dspluginhelperd provides support for 3rd party DirectoryService plugins. More information can be accessed from the Darwin Open Directory Page: http://developer.apple.com/darwin/projects/opendirectory/ OPTIONS
The options are as follows: -v Display the release version. DIAGNOSTICS
See odutil(1) for information on enabling debug logging and various other options introspection of opendirectoryd. ERRORS
Error codes are available using dserr(1) or from framework headers <DirectoryService/DirServiceTypes.h>. DirectoryService.framework is dep- recated as of 10.6 and OpenDirectory.framework should be used instead. OPEN SOURCE
The source code for dspluginhelperd is available as part of Apple's Darwin open source initiative. dspluginhelperd is part of the Directory- Service project. More information on Darwin may be found on the Web at http://developer.apple.com/darwin/projects/opendirectory/ DirectoryService API and Plug-in API are documented at http://developer.apple.com/referencelibrary/Networking/ The headers for the deprecated DirectoryService APIs can also be found in the following location: /System/Library/Frameworks/DirectoryService.framework/Headers/ FILES
/Library/DirectoryServices/PlugIns location of third party plugins SEE ALSO

NAME
DirectoryService -- DirectoryService daemon (a part of MacOS X's Open Directory architecture) SYNOPSIS
DirectoryService [-hv] DESCRIPTION
Apple's Open Directory architecture includes source code for both directory client access and directory servers. Open Directory forms the foundation of how Mac OS X accesses all authoritative configuration information (users, groups, mounts, managed desktop data, etc.). Mac OS X obtains this information via abstraction APIs, enabling use of virtually any directory system. Configuration of Open Directory is done through the Directory Access applications in /Applications/Utilities. This application can configure plugin settings, including turning on/off various directory services. Open Directory Access Directory Services is a core part of the Open Directory technology. Directory Services provides a client read/write/authentication API abstraction for accessing directory-based data. Directory Services consists of an access API, and an API daemon, and a plug-in API. An additional element of Open Directory is the existing Darwin component of lookupd that provides a read-only abstraction for accessing all BSD configuration information. Both lookupd and Directory Services work in conjunction with each other via the DSAgent to provide authorita- tive and consistent configuration information to all processes running on Mac OS X regardless of which Directory API they are using. The source code for DSAgent is also available. More information can be accessed from the Darwin Open Directory Page: http://developer.apple.com/darwin/projects/opendirectory/ Open Directory Servers Apple's Open Directory Servers are OpenLDAP and NetInfo. OpenLDAP and NetInfo are included as part of Mac OS X Desktop and Server, and are also included with Darwin. Both OpenLDAP and NetInfo provide a robust and scalable platform for serving directory based configuration infor- mation for both stand-alone and networked CPUs. OpenLDAP and NetInfo share the same datastore and both separately consist of: o Access API o Server process o Command line tools for displaying and modifying the contents of the Directory Server data. Documentation Directory Services Access API and Plug-in API is documented at: http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/macosx/Networking/ The headers for the DirectoryService APIs can also be found in the following location: /System/Library/Frameworks/DirectoryService.framework/Headers/ OPTIONS
The options are as follows: -h Display list of options -v Display the release version. PLUGINS
The following plugins can be managed using the Directory Access application. o BSD (Flat File and NIS) o NetInfo o LDAPv3 o Search o SMB o SLP o Rendezvous (zero-conf) o Appletalk o PasswordServer DIAGNOSTICS
There are two helpful signals you can send to the DirectoryService daemon to help diagnose problems you may be having. (Example: % sudo kil- lall -USR1 DirectoryService). USR2 logging automatically turns off after 5 minutes. o USR1 Turns Debug Logging (on/off) See /Library/Logs/DirectoryService/DirectoryService.debug.log o USR2 Turns API Logging (on/off) See /var/log/system.log ERRORS
