This topic describes how to configure only Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) without a WebLogic administration domain. It includes the following sections:
Perform the configuration in this topic if you want to register Oracle Virtual Directory with a remote WebLogic Administration Server for management purposes, but you do not want to install Oracle WebLogic Server locally.
Note:To manage Oracle Virtual Directory using Fusion Middleware Control in this environment, you must register Oracle Virtual Directory with the remote WebLogic Administration Server after installation.
Performing the configuration in this section deploys only Oracle Virtual Directory.
The configuration in this section depends on Oracle WebLogic Server.
Perform the following steps to configure only Oracle Virtual Directory without a domain:
Ensure that Oracle Virtual Directory is installed, as described in Installation Roadmap and Installing OID, OVD, ODSM, ODIP, and OIF (188.8.131.52.0).
Note:Installing Oracle WebLogic Server is optional in this particular scenario. Instead, you can create the Middleware Home by using the Oracle Identity Management Configuration Wizard, as described later in Step 4 of the procedure.
<ORACLE_HOME>/bin/config.sh (On UNIX) or
<ORACLE_HOME>\bin\config.bat to start the Oracle Identity Management Configuration Wizard. Click Next to continue.
Select Configure without a Domain on the Select Domain screen and click Next. The Specify Installation Location screen appears.
Enter the following information in each field:
Oracle Middleware Home Location: If an Oracle Middleware Home directory already exists, enter the path to it in this field. If an Oracle Middleware Home directory does not exist, enter a path to the location where you want the Installer to create the directory that will contain the Oracle Common Home and Oracle Home directories. The Installer creates an Oracle Common Home directory and an Oracle Home directory inside the directory you identify in this field.
The Oracle Middleware Home directory is commonly referred to as MW_HOME.
Note:The Oracle Middleware Home directory is not required to contain an Oracle WebLogic Server installation.
Oracle Home Directory: Enter a name for the Oracle Home directory. The Installer uses the name you enter in this field to create the Oracle Home directory under the location you enter in the Oracle Middleware Home Location field. The Oracle Home directory is commonly referred to as ORACLE_HOME.
Oracle Instance Location: Enter the directory path to the location where you want to create the Oracle Instance directory. The Installer creates the Oracle Instance directory using the location you enter in this field and using the name you enter in the Oracle Instance Name field. You can identify any location on your system for the Oracle Instance directory—it does not have to reside inside the Oracle Middleware Home directory.
Oracle Instance Name: Enter a name for the Oracle Instance directory. The Installer uses the name you enter in this field to create the Oracle Instance directory at the location you specify in the Oracle Instance Location field. This directory is commonly referred to as ORACLE_INSTANCE.
After you enter information for each field, click Next. The Specify Security Updates screen appears.
Choose how you want to be notified about security issues:
If you want to be notified about security issues through email, enter your email address in the Email field.
If you want to be notified about security issues through My Oracle Support (formerly MetaLink), select the My Oracle Support option and enter your My Oracle Support Password.
If you do not want to be notified about security issues, leave all fields empty.
Click Next. The Configure Components screen appears.
Select only Oracle Virtual Directory. Ensure no other components are selected and click Next. The Configure Ports screen appears.
Choose how you want the Installer to configure ports:
Select Auto Port Configuration if you want the Installer to configure ports from a predetermined range.
Select Specify Ports using Configuration File if you want the Installer to configure ports using the staticports.ini file. You can click View/Edit File to update the settings in the staticports.ini file.
Click Next. The Specify Oracle Virtual Directory Information screen appears.
Enter the following information:
LDAP v3 Name Space: Enter the name space for Oracle Virtual Directory. The default value is dc=us,dc=oracle,dc=com.
HTTP Web Gateway: Select this option to enable the Oracle Virtual Directory HTTP Web Gateway.
Secure: Select this option if you enabled the HTTP Web Gateway and you want to secure it using SSL.
Administrator User Name: Enter the user name for the Oracle Virtual Directory administrator. The default value is cn=orcladmin.
Password: Enter the password for the Oracle Virtual Directory administrator.
Confirm Password: Enter the password for the Oracle Virtual Directory administrator again.
Configure Administrative Server in secure mode: Select this option to secure the Oracle Virtual Directory Administrative Listener using SSL. This option is selected by default. Oracle recommends selecting this option.
Click Next. The Installation Summary screen appears.
Complete the installation by performing all the steps in Completing an Installation.
Execute the following command to register Oracle Virtual Directory with the WebLogic Administration Server. Registering with the WebLogic Administration Server allows you to manage Oracle Virtual Directory using Fusion Middleware Control.
$ORACLE_INSTANCE/bin/opmnctl registerinstance -adminHost HOSTNAME -adminPort WEBLOGIC_PORT -adminUsername WEBLOGIC_ADMIN_USERNAME
Note:You will be prompted for the WebLogic administrator's user name and password.
$ORACLE_INSTANCE/bin/opmnctl registerinstance \ -adminHost myhost \ -adminPort 7001 \ -adminUsername weblogic \
Note:The default administrative port on the WebLogic Administration Server is 7001.
