Data Storage Requirements

Fedora Directory Server

For a CA, DRM, OCSP, TKS, or TPS subsystem, either have a Fedora Directory Server available on the network in order to provide data storage for the installed PKI RPMs, or simply install the fedora-ds-base package:

yum install fedora-ds-base

The first time you install a Fedora Directory Server, you need to configure it. Run this command as root:


If a brand-new Fedora Directory System is installed, first time users must execute /usr/sbin/, select a "typical" installation, and follow the instructions presented to configure this new directory server. Note that "default" choices are generally fine.

Curious users may find more detailed information about the Fedora Directory Server at

SQLite Database

RA subsystems utilize an SQLite database for data storage. The RA does not use the LDAP instance for storage.
