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.

I just tried SL 6.1. I did a 'basic server' clean install.
The epel-389-ds-base repo (as recommended here
) contains a URL
which doesn't work (it's based off of $releasever, which on SL 6.1
is...6.1, not "6"! RHEL 6.1 has been out since May, it'd be nice if
this was fixed.)
The URL in the file also isn't correct for the testing repo;
trying to access:
...and the correct URL, based on browsing the site in question, is:
Amazingly, finally, it all seems to have installed.
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
