The Communications Suite installer program installs a series of products, shared components, and libraries that interoperate with one another.
To successfully install and configure Delegated Administrator, you need to install the following components by running the Communications Suite installer. Alternatively, the dependent components such as Directory Server may already be installed on your system. If supported versions have already been installed, you do not have to reinstall them now.
The following list includes all supported versions of the dependent components. If you install the components with the current Communications Suite installer, only the latest versions of these components are available.
Sun Java System Directory Server 5.x or 6.x. (Version 6.x is installed with the current Communications Suite installer.)
Access Manager 7 has two installation types: Legacy Mode (the default) and Realm Mode. Legacy Mode is compatible with Delegated Administrator.
When you run the Communications Suite installer, in the first Access Manager panel, you must choose Legacy mode as the Install type. Do not choose Realm mode.
Because Delegated Administrator requires you to use LDAP Schema 2 to provision your users and groups, you need to install Access Manager.
One of the following Web containers:
Sun Java System Web Server 6.x
Sun Java System Web Server 7.x (installed with the current Communications Suite installer)
Sun Java System Application Server 7.x
Sun Java System Application Server 8.x (installed with the current Communications Suite installer)
The Communications Suite installer also checks to make sure you have installed Directory Server and one of the Web containers listed above.
One or both of Sun Java System Messaging Server and Sun Java System Calendar Server.
Delegated Administrator is a provisioning tool for Messaging Server and Calendar Server. Therefore, to use Delegated Administrator successfully, you should install either or both of these applications.
See the Sun Java System Messaging Server Administration Guide for instructions on configuring Messaging Server. See the Sun Java System Calendar Server Administration Guide for instructions on configuring Calendar Server.
A panel in the Communications Suite installer asks whether to install Delegated Administrator. In this panel, specify that you want to install Delegated Administrator.
For information about the Communications Suite installer, refer to the Sun Java Communications Suite Installation Guide.
If you are upgrading Delegated Administrator from a previous Sun Java version, see the chapter called “Upgrading Delegated Administrator” in the Sun Java Communications Suite Upgrade Guide.
