Now that https://fedorahosted.org/389/ticket/528 is fixed, the next step is to allow installing the server with the instance specific scripts disabled.
Please see https://fedorahosted.org/389/ticket/47840
389ds will be built with template scripts and will not install them to instances by default.
389ds will be built with template scripts and if requested with setup-ds.pl, will install the scripts along with a deprecation warning.
389ds will be built with templates scripts and upon a setup-ds.pl –upgrade, will prompt the user to delete or preserve the instance directory.
All documentation for 389ds should be updated to reflect the usage of the /usr/sbin/
The template scripts should be checked to ensure that they are merely templates to the /usr/sbin scripts, rather than still full scripts. This should already have been covered by https://fedorahosted.org/389/ticket/528
setup-ds.pl will gain a new option to enable the installation of the instance directory and script. This should have an option in the .inf setup file. Only when this option is specified will inst_dir become a necessary option to fill in. Otherwise inst_dir is ignored. By default, the installation of these scripts is disabled.
setup-ds.pl in upgrade mode will gain an option to delete the inst_dir. If this is not taken, the scripts will be upgraded as usual. However, a warning should be presented due to deprecation.
At some time in the future, there support for the per-instance script directory should be removed.
Once this is complete, the per-instance script templates will be removed from git.
No external impact.
