The RedHat Directory Server is an additional entitlement you need to purchase. You can use the RedHat-packaged OpenLDAP server freely, but their Directory server is an additional license that must be purchased.

There are sales contact links off of this page

We have a site license for RedHat, and had contacted them a few months ago about adding Directory Server. I am positive it is an additional fee.

Not sure, but I have used the free Fedora Directory Server with CentOS systems, so that is an option if the RHEL offering requires a license.
