Before you install the ssopatch utility:
Download and unzip the patch ZIP file in the latest OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 update or patch release (patch ID 141655).
Set your JAVA_HOME environment variable point to JDK 1.5 or later.
Always install the latest version of the ssopatch or ssopatch.bat utility (and the corresponding updateschema.sh or updateschema.bat script) from the OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 patch release you are installing.
Locate the ssoPatchTools.zip file in the zip-root/opensso/tools directory, where zip-root is where you unzipped the update release patch ZIP file.
Create a new directory to unzip the ssoPatchTools.zip file. For example: ssopatch-files
Unzip the ssoPatchTools.zip file in the new directory. You then get these files:
ssopatch and ssopatch.bat utilities
resources directory, which contains the ssopatch properties files
lib directory, which contains the ssopatch JAR files
patch directory, which contains the updateschema and updateschema.bat scripts and related XML files
If you want to run the ssopatch utility from a directory other than its current directory without providing the full path, add the utility to your PATH variable.
