Access Manager and Portal Server Example

This example installs Portal Server with Access Manager on a single host, using Web Server as the web container. Portal Server and Access Manager should use the same type of web container.

You can use Access Manager Core Services, Access Manager Administration Console, and Common Domain Services for Federation on another host by deselecting these subcomponents of Access Manager.

When you are installing Access Manager with Portal Server, you can select either Realm (7.x) mode or Legacy (6.x) mode for Access Manager (ignoring the installer message that says Legacy mode is required for Portal Server). However, Portal Server supports Realm mode only if Access Manager is configured with Directory Server, with AM SDK configured for the data store.

ProcedureTo Develop a Sequence for Access Manager and Portal Server

The following high-level tasks are required:

  1. Checking the installation sequence guidelines

    Check to see what sequence guidelines apply. Refer to Table 2–1.

  2. Checking the installation prerequisites

    Check to see what installation prerequisites apply. Refer to Table 1–3.

  3. Running the Java ES installer

  4. At component selection, choosing Portal Server and Web Server

    Access Manager, Directory Server, Directory Preparation Tool, Java DB, and Service Registry are automatically selected.

    • To use a remote copy of Directory Server, deselect Directory Server and specify a remote copy when prompted.


      Note –

      The remote Directory Server must be running before installing any other product components. For instructions on installing Directory Server, refer to Directory Server Only Example.


    • To use a remote copy of Access Manager, deselect Access Manager and specify a remote copy during postinstallation configuration.

  5. Resolving incompatibilities

    The installer verifies software on your host and provides guidance if incompatibilities are identified.

  6. Selecting the Configure Now or Configure Later type

    • For the Configure Now type configuration pages are displayed for those product components that allow installation-time configuration. Do not accept defaults for product components that are remote; use the remote information.

    • For the Configure Later type, configuration pages are not displayed.

  7. Running the installation

  8. Viewing the Installation Summary and Log

  9. Completing postinstallation configuration

  10. Starting product components

  11. Accessing the default Access Manager login page

    For Legacy mode: http://webserver-host:port/amconsole

    For Realm mode: http://webserver-host:port/amserver
