Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Resources Reference

Installing .NET Connectors

Success installation of a .NET connector requires these steps:

Note that before you install the .NET zip files, you must install and register a .NET connector server. A connector server manages one or more .NET bundles, and handles requests between Identity Manager and the .NET bundles. A .NET connector server is roughly analogous to the Identity Manager gateway. For more information, see

ProcedureInstalling a .NET Connector Executable Zip File

.NET connector bundles are delivered as two ZIP files.

Note –

You must install a .NET connector server before installing the .NET executable connector zip file.

To install the .NET connector's executable zip file:

  1. If the connector server is already installed and running, stop the Connector Server service.

  2. Unzip the ZIP file into the connector server installation directory.

  3. Start the Connector Server service. If the connector server is not yet declared in Identity Manager, see Registering a Connector Server.

ProcedureInstalling a .NET Connector Identity Manager Zip File

  1. Stop your Identity Manager web application.

  2. Extract the connector ZIP file into the your Identity Manager web application directory, and restart your Identity Manager.

  3. Follow any additional connector-specific installation notes.

  4. (Optional) You may be required to import one or more Exchange files before using the new connector.

    After following this procedure, the new .NET connector should now be visible to Identity Manager. To confirm this, log in to the Identity Manager Administrator Interface as an administrator who has the Resource Administrator capability. Confirm that the .NET connector is listed in the displayed table with the appropriate connector server by checking Resources > Resource Type Actions > Configure Managed Resources.
