|Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Unified Directory 11g Release 1 (11.1.1)|
This section describes the configuration steps that are necessary to get an Oracle Unified Directory proxy instance up and running.
The section provides an overview of the tested Oracle Unified Directory proxy deployments. Other deployments are possible, but might not have been tested extensively. For a description of these deployments, see Chapter 7, Example Deployments Using the Proxy Server, in Oracle Fusion Middleware Deployment Planning Guide for Oracle Unified Directory.
Note - You will need one or more remote LDAPv3–compliant directory servers installed to use Oracle Unified Directory proxy. Oracle Unified Directory proxy has been tested with Oracle Unified Directory and Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1)
Before you start to install Oracle Unified Directory proxy, determine the deployment architecture that you want to implement.
Simple load balancing
Distribution with load balancing
Failover between data centers
Distribution with failover between data centers
A global index catalog can be incorporated into any scenario that uses distribution. For information about creating a global index catalog, see Configuring Global Indexes By Using the Command Line in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administration Guide for Oracle Unified Directory.
You can set up Oracle Unified Directory proxy in two ways:
Graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI setup is a Java-based graphical installer that enables you to configure all the elements required for specific Oracle Unified Directory proxy deployments.
Note - You can use the GUI setup only once per instance. If you want to modify an installation after you have run the GUI setup, you must use the dsconfig command.
Command-line interface (CLI). The interactive command-line setup prompts you for the first few steps of the Oracle Unified Directory proxy installation. To complete the deployment, you must configure a number of additional elements (such as distribution and/or load balancing) using the dsconfig command.
