    OID to OID/Active Directory/iPlanet other LDAP Server Integration
    Tuesday, February 06, 2007
    Register for R12 upgrade
    In Today's Post I am going to cover overview OID to other LDAP Server Integration. Other LDAP Server can be Oracle's Internet Directory or Sun's iPlanet or Microsoft Active Directory (These are standard directory Servers but you can integrate OID with other third party LDAP servers as well)

    Two way / One way Integration
    You can integrate to synch changes one way only i..e. from Other ldap server OID or both way i.e. OID to other ldap server & vice-versa. (For Two way Integration you should have access to Update other LDAP Server)

    Various OID Server Instances
    Under OID there three services
    - OIDLDAPD Server which is used for normal directory processing
    - OIDREPLD Replication Server (To replicate entire OID to other OID server)
    - ODISRV Directory Integration & Provision Server (This is the server/services used to integrate OID Users/Groups/objects with third party LDAP Servers)

    By default OIDLDAPD & ODISRV Instances are started as you start OID using OPMN but you still need to start one more Instance of ODISRV for Integrating OID with other LDAP Servers

    ODISRV is by default Up why I need additional ODISRV Server ?
    Default ODISRV is used by Provisioning Services i.e. to povision users & groups from OID to Oracle Applications i.e. Portal/Workflow/Discoverer... So for Integrating OID with third party ldap server including OID we need another Instance of ODISRV.

    How to start ODISRV & check related logs ?
    You can start additional ODISRV instance using OIDCTL command

    oidctl connect=[tns_alias] host=[oid_hostname] server=odisrv instance=2 configset=0 start

    to stop it use

    oidctl connect=[tns_alias] host=[oid_hostname] server=odisrv instance=2 stop

    Logs related to above odisrv process will be in $ORACLE_HOME/ldap/log/odisrv0X.log where X is instance name.
    Other log files will be at $ORACLE_HOME/ldap/odi/log/[profile_name].aud & [profile_name].trc

    For Other things on OID to OID or other LDAP server Integration (iPlanet/AD) and significance of audit & trace log files mentioned above including Synchronization Profiles in OID..

    Coming Soon ......

      Is there some reason you didn't mention OpenLDAP?

    • At 3:37 PM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      Hi Anonymous,
      No its just like I never worked on Integration of OID with openLdap (I worked on OID to OID,AD,iPlanet only).
      You can very well integrate with openLdap but you have to tweak with provision profile and mapping file

      Hi, i am trying to integrate the OID with the windows active directory! I actually managed to Import the AD users to OID by tweaking the profiles and mapping files! but the thing is i cant export them back! can u post somekind of a step by step help? please! thanks.

    • At 10:45 PM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      Can you explain what do you mean by export them back ?

      Where to export back ?

      Do you mean by synchronization with AD ?

      Hi Atul,
      Can you tell me how to query LDAP,
      I am using oracle portal and users and groups are created in OID.
      I want to get the details of users like firstname, lastname & email Address who belongs to particular group.

      Hey Atul,
      Can you provide DipTester tutorial?
      Im trying to integrate OId and Sun through Diptester.

      And, what is the meaning/importance/significance of '#entries ignored' during bootstrapping?

      Hi Atul,

      I am steeping into OID and have learnt some basics in OID. Can you suggest me some good documents for OID to AD integration or some link.
