Can you talk to me about FreeIPA?
What is it?
What are the benefits of it?
Does it have a web page?

I Have to wonder if you are going this far to run 389 on RHEL 6.1 that you dont go a
little further and try FreeIPA which is also a tech preview in 6.1.

EL6 support is . . . tricky. We will not provide support for 6.0 - too
many missing dependencies. With RHEL6.1, since the 389-ds-base package
is provided by the base OS, we cannot provide them via EPEL, hence the
use of the private developer repo at fedorapeople.org
. The other
"problem" with EL6 is that the 389-ds-base package is not the full
package - it is missing the replication and windows sync bits (hence the
problem with the missing repl-monitor.pl). You have to pay extra for
the ds-replication package in RHEL6 - right now it is available as a
"tech preview" from your local sales rep. The 389-ds-base package from
does have the replication bits.
So, to summarize, if you want the full 389 ds/admin/console on EL6:
1) you must use EL 6.1 or later
2) you must use 389-ds-base from the fedorapeople.org
3) you must use EPEL6 for the other packages
