OpenSSO Enterprise uses a file to bootstrap itself. Previously, AMConfig.properties held configuration information to bootstrap the server but now a file named bootstrap points to the configuration data store allowing the setup servlet to retrieve the bootstrapping data. After deploying the OpenSSO Enterprise WAR and running the configuration wizard, configuration data is written to the configuration data store by the service management API contained in the Java package, com.sun.identity.sm. The setup servlet creates bootstrap in the top-level configuration directory. The content in bootstrap can be either of the following:
A directory local to OpenSSO Enterprise (for example, /export/SUNWam) indicating the server was configured with a previous release. The directory is where AMConfig.properties resides.
An encoded URL that points to a directory service using the following format:
ldap://ds-host:ds-port/server-instance-name?pwd=encrypted-amadmin-password& embeddedds=path-to-directory-service-installation&basedn=base-dn& dsmgr=directory-admin&dspwd=encrypted-directory-admin-password
ldap://ds.samples.com:389/http://owen2.red.sun.com:8080/ opensso?pwd=AQIC5wM2LY4Sfcxi1dVZEdtfwar2vhWNkmS8&embeddedds= /opensso/opends&basedn=dc=opensso,dc=java,dc=net&dsmgr= cn=Directory Manager&dspwd=AQIC5wM2LY4Sfcxi1 dVZEdtfwar2vhWNkmS8
ds.samples.com:389 is the host name and port of the machine on which the directory is installed.
http://owen2.red.sun.com:8080/opensso is the instance name.
AQIC5wM2LY4Sfcxi1dVZEdtfwar2vhWNkmS8 is the encrypted password of the OpenSSO administrator.
/opensso/opends is the path to the directory installation.
dc=opensso,dc=java,dc=net is the base DN.
cn=Directory Manager is the directory administrator.
AQIC5xM2LY4SfcximdVZEdtfwar4vhWNkmG7 is the encrypted password for the directory administrator.
If more than one URL is present in the file and OpenSSO Enterprise is unable to connect or authenticate to the data store at the first URL, the bootstrapping servlet will try the second (and so on). Additionally, the number sign [#] can be used to exclude a URL as in:
# ldap://ds.samples.com:389/http://owen2.red.sun.com:8080/ opensso?pwd=AQIC5wM2LY4Sfcxi1dVZEdtfwar2vhWNkmS8&embeddedds= /opensso/opends&basedn=dc=opensso,dc=java,dc=net&dsmgr= cn=Directory+Manager&dspwd=AQIC5wM2LY4Sfcxi1dVZEdtf war2vhWNkmS8
