Red Hat frequently releases updated versions of Red Hat Directory Server 11. This section describes how to update the Directory Server packages.

If you instead want to migrate Red Hat Directory Server 10 to version 11, see Chapter 5, Migrating Directory Server 10 to Directory Server 11.


  • Red Hat Directory Server 11 installed on the server.
  • The system to update is registered to the Red Hat subscription management service.
  • A valid Red Hat Directory Server subscription is attached to the server.

4.1. Updating the Directory Server packages

Use the yum utility to update the module, which also automatically updates the related packages. The following procedure updates Directory Server from version 11.8 to 11.9.

  1. Disable the Directory Server 11.8 repository:

    # subscription-manager repos --disable dirsrv-11.8-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms
    Repository 'dirsrv-11.8-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms' is disabled for this system.
  2. Enable the Directory Server 11.9 repository:

    # subscription-manager repos --enable=dirsrv-11.9-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms
    Repository 'dirsrv-11.9-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms' is enabled for this system.
  3. Update the Directory Server packages:

    # yum module update redhat-ds

    This command updates Directory Server packages and their dependencies to version 11.9.

During the update, the dirsrv service restarts automatically for all instances on the server.
