This section contains information on a Federation Manager installation and preparing it for the SAML v2 Plug-in for Federation Services installation.
Federation Manager can be installed on the Solaris OS, Red Hat Linux, or Microsoft Windows. The default root installation directory for the Solaris OS is /opt.
/opt is the default root installation directory for Federation Manager. When specified in a path, /FederationManager-base will be used as a generic placeholder. Unlike in Access Manager, the SUNWam directory in Federation Manager cannot be modified so references to this directory will remain static. See the Sun Java System Federation Manager 7.0 User’s Guide for more information on the default installation directory and the default runtime directory.
For information on installing Federation Manager, see the Sun Java System Federation Manager 7.0 User’s Guide. Additional information on Linux and Windows installations of Federation Manager can be found in the following:
Before installing the SAML v2 Plug-in for Federation Services into an instance of Sun Java System Federation Manager, backup your staging directory. For more information on Linux and Windows installations of the SAML v2 Plug-in for Federation Services, see the following:
