After installing Netscape's Directory Server 4 for Solaris, one of the final  
options is to remove a file called 'install.inf' which the install process  
claims could contain sensitive information. Answering yes to this question  
will delete the file.  
  
However there is another file left behind after installation which contains  
the un-encrypted 'admin' password. This file has world read permissions and  
is located in  
  
/usr/netscape/server4/admin-serv/config/adm.conf  
  
The parameter is seipid
