    Installing Oracle Identity Manager (Thor Xellerate)
    Friday, May 04, 2007
    Register for R12 upgrade
    Before installing Identity Manager, make yourself familiar with Oracle Identity Manager Concepts and Architecture

    Oracle Identity Manager can only be installed on Web Server (OAS, Webspehere, Weblogic, Jboss) and Remote Manager and Design Console (for windows only) can exist on same or separate machines.

    Steps for installing identity manager vary as per your application server and database but underlying concept remains same. Steps mentioned here are specific to, installing Oracle Identity Manager with Oracle Application Server as web server and oracle database as data store.

    Generic Steps for Installing Oracle Identity Manager
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A) Install Web Server (OAS, Jboss, Webspahere)
    B) Install & Configure Database for Identity Manager (Oracle, MS-Sql, sql server)
    C) Install JDK (for OAS use JDK shipped with OAS)

    A) Installing Web Server :
    ------------------------------------
    1. Download Oracle Application Server software (version 10.1.3.0.2 at time of writing this doc) from downloads.oracle.com
    2. Select J2EE and Web Server option during installing OAS 10.1.3.X
    3. Change RMI port in opmn.xml file to a specific port (from port range available in opmn.xml for RMI)
    4. Set environment variable JAVA_HOME to $ORACLE_HOME/jdk/bin for user installing Identity Manager

    B) Install and configure Database :
    --------------------------------------------------
    Identity Manager require database for storing policy data and metadata. before installing identity manager, you should install Web Server and Database server. In oracle database from list of databases, Oracle Identity Manager support both RAC and simple Oracle Database (without RAC). You can also use an existing oracle database as well.

    1. Install oracle database software & create database (Follow oracle database installation Guide, You have option to create database while installing oracle database software via Oracle Universal installer)
    2. Prepare your database for installing Oracle Identity Manager
    -----2.1 Make sure JVM is configured & Query Rewrite is enabled (done in default database creation with database installer)
    -----2.2 Enable XA Transaction Support
    -----2.3 Create a tablespace for Oracle Identity Manager
    -----2.4 Create database user for Oracle Identity Manager
    or
    You can do all these above steps using prepare_xl_db.sh (.bat for windows) shipped with Oracle Identity Manager software.

    If you don't want to install new oracle database, you can use existing database for configuring identity manager tablespace & schema.

    C) Installing Oracle Identity Manager :
    -------------------------------------------------------
    Steps mentioned here are for installing Identity Manager on Unix
    1. Before installing make sure
    i) JAVA_HOME is set as mentioned above
    ii) You are installing Oracle Identity Manager with same user who installed Application Server.
    iii) uninstall commons-logging-1.0.2 from linux machine, if its there. To check if installed "rpm -qa grep commons-logging" To uninstall abobe package "rpm -e full_rpm_name"
    iv) Database and application server already installed as mentioned above
    2. start installer as sh install_server.sh (Installer will start in console mode & not GUI)
    Supply requested information during installation.

    It will prompt you for following details
    --Password for OIM Administrator account
    --Installation Type (Identity Manager or Identity Manager with Audit and Compliance Module)
    --Directory where you wish to install Oracle Identity Manager
    --Database Type
    --Database Hostname, listener port, SID
    --Database username/Password for OIM
    --Authentication Mode (Default OIM authentication or SSO)
    --Application Server Type
    --Cluster information (Select if you wish to install OIM in clustered Application Server installation type)
    --Username/Password and Instance Name for Application Server
    --RMI port & OPMN port (If Application Server is Oracle Application Server)

    Few things to note during installation
    i) Choose different installation directory for various Identity Manager components (identity manager, remote manager, Design Console for windows)
    ii) If you are installing Identity Manager using existing database, it will give you warning message

    Start/Stopping Oracle Identity Manager Server
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Identity Manager is installed as part of Web Server and will start/stop by starting/stopping webserver.
    - Make sure database configured for Identity Manager is Up
    - Start Web Server (for Oracle Application Server use, opmnctl startall Similarly for stopping OIM, stop application server (opmnctl stopall) and shutdown database.

    Accessing Oracle Identity Manager Administrative/User Console
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    http://hostname:domainname:port/xlWebApp
    where
    --hostname.domainname is full name of Server (or virtual name) where Application Server is installed.
    --port is web server/apache/http or https port number (7777 is default for oracle application server)

      I'm new in OIM. I install it on Jboss AS and SQL Server database and it works well. Now I want to customize the Administrative and User console webApp but I have many problems. The oracle's documentation isn't sufficient to do this customization. If I want to add a new field in the create user form, I'm able to do this but if I don't want to use an existing field during the creation process I got an internal error during the visualization of an existing user's profile. Could you help me? Where can I find more documentation about this argument?

      I already read this documentation but I can't find any other informations. I have a problem with hiding fields in the user create page. If I hide an attribute reference in the file FormMetaData.xml, the application gives me an internal error when I view one user profile. How can I solve this problem?

      While installing OIM on Oracle App Server cluster, we will be prompted to give the 'cluster name'. What is that cluster name ??

      Hi all,
      I'm new in OIM so it's possibile that my following question isn't applicable; in this case, sorry in advance ;)
      I would implement a OIM installation with a Application Server Layer and a Database Server layer. Application server layer will have a load balancer. My question is: is it possibile to have a load balancer between application server and database server and configuring database server in multimaster replication?
      Database server contact application server only following a JDBC request from application server, or is it possibile that database server contact application server without previous JDBC connection?
      thanks in advance for your help !
