Figure 2-1 Single-host installation procedure
Some components must be installed in a particular order, so be sure to read all installation instructions carefully.
Identity Synchronization for Windows provides a “To Do” list, which is displayed throughout the installation and configuration process. This information panel lists all of the steps that you must follow to successfully install and configure the product.
Figure 2-2 To Do List for Identity Synchronization for Windows Installation and Configuration
As you go through the installation and configuration process, all completed steps in the list are grayed-out as shown in Figure 6–2.
The rest of this section provides an overview of the installation and configuration process.
Sun Java System Administration Server. Configures the Directory Server Plug-in and provides the administration framework.
Central logger. Centralizes all audit and error logging information in a central location.
System manager. Delivers configuration updates to connectors dynamically and maintains the status of each connector.
Instructions for installing Core are provided in Chapter 3, Installing Core
After installing Core, use Console to initially configure the directory sources to be synchronized and other characteristics of the deployment, all from a centralized location.
Instructions for configuring directory resources are provided in Chapter 4, Configuring Core Resources.
You can perform this task from the Console, or from the command line by using the idsync prepds subcommand.
Instructions for preparing Directory Server are provided in Preparing Sun Directory Source.
You can install any number of connectors depending on the number of configured directories in your topology. Both the Console and the installation program use the directory label to associate a connector with the directory that is synchronized. The following table describes the label naming conventions.
Table 2-1 Label Naming Conventions
Table 2-2 Label Naming Examples
Instructions for installing and configuring Connectors are provided in Chapter 3, Installing Core
After installing the connectors, plug-ins, and subcomponents, you must run the idsync resync command-line utility to bootstrap deployments with existing users. This command uses administrator-specified matching rules to do the following:
Link existing entries (for more information about linking users , see Linking Users)
Populate an empty directory with the contents of a remote directory
Bulk-synchronize attribute values (including passwords) between two existing user populations, where entries in both the Windows and Directory Server directories are uniquely identified and linked to each other
Instructions for synchronizing existing users in your deployment are provided in Chapter 6, Synchronizing Existing Users and User Groups.
