I am setting up active directory for database release and my operating system is windows server 2000.

My database is already installed and its working fine. Now i have to set the active directory. Do i have to re-install the database while setting the Active directory or can i continue with the existing setup.

your response will be greatly appreciated

What is 'Now i have to set the active directory'?

Do you mean archive directory? If so then just create the directory you want to use and change the init.ora file to point to it, and restart the database.

In fact you may not even need to restart the database if you use the right statement on a running database.

Something like
1) create the directory you want to use
2) make sure audit_trail = true in your init.ora file
3) issue statement 'alter database archivelog rename '<yourfile>' TO '<newfile>';'

Hope this helps.

Oh yes, Active_directoy or ldap.
From the book;

What Is LDAP?
LDAP is a standard, extensible directory access protocol that enables directory
clients and servers to interact using a common language. LDAP, as the name
suggests, is a lightweight implementation the X.500 Directory Access Protocol
(DAP), first published in 1990. The X.500 protocol grew out of a need for a directory
model that bridged applications and operating systems. However, it proved
cumbersome, partly because it runs over the OSI networking stack. LDAP by
contrast runs directly over TCP/IP, which is popular, fast, simple, and relatively
inexpensive to implement.

The Benefits of LDAP
LDAP simplifies directory management in the following ways.
n It provides users and applications in an enterprise with a single, well-defined,
standard interface to a single, extensible directory service.
n It reduces the need to manage and coordinate application-specific directories
n Its well-defined protocol and array of programmatic interfaces make it more
practical to deploy internet-ready applications that leverage the directory.

LDAP Version 3
The most recent version of the LDAP protocol is version 3, which in December 1997
was approved as an Internet standard. Version 3 improves on version 2 in fve
n Globalization Support
LDAP version 3 supports UTF-8, an encoding of Unicode, the 16-bit encoding
standard used to store and retrieve information in any language.
n Referrals
LDAP 3 supports knowledge references, LDAP URLs that refer users to other
directory servers if the requested information does not reside on the server
being queried. This feature enables a directory to be partitioned—that is,
distributed across different servers.
n Security
LDAP version 3 supports SASL (Simple Authentication and Security Layer), an
Internet standard that enables clients to choose the authentication protocols that
they want to use. It also supports Transport Layer Security (TLS), a
standardized version of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which encrypts data that
passes between client and server.
n Extensibility
LDAP version 3 enables new LDAP operations to be defined, uses mechanisms
called controls to modify existing operations, and permits new authentication
methods through SASL.
n Feature and schema discovery
LDAP version 3 servers publish the versions of the LDAP protocol that they
support and their schemas in a directory entry called the root DSE (directory
server-specific entry). This feature facilitates interaction with other LDAP
clients and servers.
