Chapter 3 The DSAME Installation Program for Solaris
The iPlanet Directory Server Access Management Edition (DSAME) installation program is used to install or uninstall the complete product all at once, or components of the product one at a time. You can use the DSAME installation program in a number of ways depending upon your deployment needs. This chapter provides an overview of the options presented in the installation program, as well as some pointers on determining the installation tasks you'll need to perform.
Topics in this chapter include:
Before You Begin
Before You Begin
Be sure to resolve the following before you start the installation program:
You must have root permissions to run the installation program.
Determine whether or not you will be installing DSAME Services to run using iPlanet Application Server or using iPlanet Web Server. In either case, you will need the computer system name and port number for the server when you install DSAME Services.
Determine whether or not you will be installing DSAME policy agents. For more information, see "URL Policy Agent".
Determine whether or not you will be installing cross-domain single sign-on components. For more information, see "Cross-Domain Single Sign-On".
Installation Program Options
Each time you run the installation program, a number of installation options are displayed. Determine which installation option to choose by first identifying your scenario in Table 3-1, and then follow the detailed instructions that correspond to that scenario. The following is a brief summary of what happens when you choose each of the main installation options.
Option 1) DSAME Management and Policy Services
When you choose this option, if you don't already have an existing Directory Server, the following are installed for you:
iPlanet Directory Server (optional)When the installation program is done, the complete product is installed, and you can immediately log into DSAME. No user data will be present in the directory.
Option 2) iPlanet Directory Server 5.1
When you choose this option, only Directory Server 5.1 is installed; no DSAME services are installed. When you choose this option, you're given the opportunity to install DSAME schema. For detailed information on installing Directory Server 5.1 or upgrading to version 5.1, see the documentation that comes with iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 Installation Guide. Or you can access the documentation on the Internet at http://docs.iplanet.com/docs/manuals/directory.html
Option 3) iPlanet Directory Server Configuration for DSAME
When you choose this option, you are prompted for the host and port number of your existing Directory Server. Only the DSAME schema is installed on the server where the Directory Server is installed. The schema file 95ns-amschema.ldif file is added to your server schema directory. No new Directory Server is installed; no existing data is overwritten. Choose this option only if you plan to use DSAME with an existing Directory Server 5.1 instance that's already provisioned with user data.
Option 4) DSAME Cross-Domain Single Sign-On
The cross-domain single sign-on feature makes it possible for users to authenticate in one domain, and then to use applications in many other domains without having to re-authenticate. When you choose this option, only the Cross-Domain Single Sign-On (CDSSO) component is installed. You can install this as part of the existing DSAME, install on Web Server, or install this by installing Webserver. For more information, see "Cross-Domain Single Sign-On".
Exiting the Installation Program
After you've started the DSAME installation program, you can exit the program at any time by pressing Ctrl-C.
Determining Which Installation Options to Use
You will probably run the DSAME installation program multiple times in order to install Directory Servers, DSAME services and DSAME web agents in the proper number and sequence. Table 3-1 summarizes the common installation scenarios, and where to find the step-by-step instructions for each scenario.
