Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Installation and Configuration Guide

Installing the ssopatch Utility

Before you install the ssopatch utility:

Note –

Always install the latest version of the ssopatch or ssopatch.bat utility (and the corresponding or updateschema.bat script) from the OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 patch release you are installing.

ProcedureTo Install the ssopatch Utility

  1. Locate the file in the zip-root/opensso/tools directory, where zip-root is where you unzipped the update release patch ZIP file.

  2. Create a new directory to unzip the file. For example: ssopatch-files

  3. Unzip the file in the new directory. You then get these files:

    • README

    • 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

  4. 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.
