CentOS Directory Server is the same as Red Hat Directory Server, which  
is the same as 389 Directory Server (former Fedora Directory Server,  
now rebaptized in order to generalize it). In some way, this one is to  
Red Hat Directory Server as Fedora Linux is to Red Hat Enterprise  
Linux. If you want the latest version, go to 389 Directory Server. You  
can cross-reference the documents for both threads of the DS to obtain  
a global panorama.

This page  
http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Administration_Manual from the  
389 project states the following:

"We don't have a manual for the Fedora version of the project at this time.
However, you can always visit the Red Hat site and look at the manual  
for the Red Hat Directory Server"

For Red Hat DS/CentOS DS, you will find a very good set of documentation here:


For 389 Directory Server, look here:
