Before you proceed with the installation, check Operating System Requirements in Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Notes for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition.
You can install the zip distribution as a non-root user.
Download the Directory Server Enterprise Edition zip distribution binaries as specified in Getting the Software in Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Notes for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition.
When this operation is complete, you should have one of the following files in your temporary space, for example, /var/tmp/dsee:
These zip files contain the Directory Server Enterprise Edition software, idsktune, the Identity Synchronization for Windows software, and the relevant legal files.
Type the following commands to install the Directory Server Enterprise Edition software.
# mkdir -p install-dir # cd /var/tmp/dsee # unzip -qq ODSEE11_1_1_3_0_xxx.zip # cd ODSEE_ZIP_Distribution # unzip -qq sun-dsee7.zip -d install-dir # cd install-dir/dsee7
You can remove the contents of /var/tmp/dsee at this point.
The install-dir directory is where all the software elements are placed. A minimum of 1 GByte of space is required in this directory.
The install-dir/dsee7 directory contains all of the Directory Server Enterprise Edition components, with the exception of the idsktune utility. (idsktune is located in /var/tmp/dsee/ODSEE_ZIP_Distribution.) For the remainder of this guide, install-dir/dsee7 is referred to as the install-path.
You are now ready to start working with the Directory Server Enterprise Edition installation.
Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) depends on the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package. If your computer does not have Visual C++ 2008 installed, you must install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86). A version of this package is provided with the Directory Server Enterprise Edition distribution, but it is recommended that you install the latest version from the Microsoft Download Center at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads (Product family: Developer tools).
To use AES_256 with Java technology-based applications and utilities, you must download the JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp and install them.
If you are already using Directory Server version 6 or 5.2, and want to use the same legacy instances with the 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) installation, refer to Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade and Migration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition.
