There can be only 1 admin server per machine. The admin server on that
machine manages all directory server instances on that machine. You can
create directory server instances that cannot be managed in the console at
all using setup-ds.pl. I don't know if that answers your question.
Thanks for the explanation, Rich.
One additional question with regards to the above, though, if I may:
Does this mean it's not intended/possible to register ldap instance(s) on
machine A with the config-server on machine B? I assumed it was because
answering "yes" on the register-with-existing-configserv step in
setup-ds-admin.pl prompts you for a full ldap-URL. However, creating an
instance with setup-ds.pl and then later running register-ds-admin.pl it
only seems possible to register locally by folder/identifier, not ldap-URL.
