Right.  /etc/dirsrv/admin-serv/adm.conf mostly.  The only information 
you must provide is the admin password.  Everything else should be

Do you use the console?  What username and password do you use?  I 
suppose you could also use the directory manager DN and password for 
your configuration directory server (the server that holds the
