    To install and configure Oracle Entitlements Server Client, see Installing Oracle Entitlements Server Client.

13.1.2 Dependencies

The installation in this section depends on the following:

  • Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1 (10.3.5)

  • Oracle Database and any required patches

  • Oracle SOA Suite 11.1.1.5.0 (required for Oracle Identity Manager only)

  • JDK (either Oracle WebLogic JRockit JDK or Sun JDK 1.6.0)

13.1.3 Procedure

Complete the following steps to install the Oracle Identity and Access Management suite that contains Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Oracle Identity Navigator, and Oracle Entitlements Server:

  1. Install the Oracle Database. Refer to Installing Oracle Database for more information.

    Note:

    Ensure that the Oracle database is with the AL32UTF8 character set encoding.

  2. Decide if you want to create new schemas for Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Metadata Services, and SOA Infrastructure by using Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility (RCU) or if you want to use an existing schema:

    • If you want to create a new schema using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility (RCU), refer to Creating Database Schema Using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility (RCU) for more information about creating schemas. After creating schemas, continue this procedure by going to Step 3.

    • If you want to use an existing schema, you must upgrade the schema by using the Upgrade Assistant tool. For more information, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade Guide for Oracle Identity Management.

  3. Install Oracle WebLogic Server. Refer to Installing Oracle WebLogic Server and Creating the Oracle Middleware Home for more information.

  4. Install Oracle SOA 11g suite if you want to use Oracle Identity Manager. For information about installing the Oracle SOA 11g suite, refer to Installing the Latest Version of Oracle SOA Suite (Oracle Identity Manager Users Only).

  5. Start your installation by performing all the steps in Starting an Installation. After you complete those steps, the Welcome screen appears.

  6. Click Next on the Welcome screen. The Install Software Updates screen appears. Select whether or not you want to search for updates. Click Next.The Prerequisite Checks screen appears. If all prerequisite checks pass inspection, click Next. The Specify Installation Location screen appears.

  7. On the Specify Installation Location screen, enter the path to the Oracle Middleware Home installed on your system. Ensure that Oracle WebLogic Server is already installed on the system in the same Middleware Home. This directory is the same as the Oracle Home created in the Oracle WebLogic Server installation.

    Note:

    If you do not specify a valid Middleware Home directory on the Specify Installation Location screen, the Installer displays a message and prompts you to confirm whether you want to proceed with the installation of only Oracle Identity Manager Design Console and Oracle Identity Manager Remote Manager. These two components of Oracle Identity Manager do not require a Middleware Home directory.

    If you want to install only Oracle Identity Manager Design Console or Remote Manager, you do not need to install Oracle WebLogic Server or create a Middleware Home directory on the machine where Design Console or Remote Manager is being configured.

    Before using Oracle Identity Manager Design Console or Remote Manager, you must configure Oracle Identity Manager Server on the machine where the Administration Server is running. When configuring Design Console or Remote Manager on a different machine, you can specify the Oracle Identity Manager Server host and URL information.

  8. In the Oracle Home Directory field, enter a name for the Oracle Home folder that will be created under your Middleware Home. This directory is also referred to as IDM_Home or IAM_Home in this book.

    Note:

    The name that you provide for the Oracle Home for installing the Oracle Identity and Access Management suite should not be same as the Oracle Home name given for the Oracle Identity Management suite.

    By default the installer chooses an alternate name Oracle_IDM2 if Oracle_IDM1 oracle home exists and has Oracle Identity Management components installed. This should not be changed to Oracle_IDM1.

    Click Next.

  9. The Installation Summary screen appears.

    The Installation Summary screen displays a summary of the choices that you made. Review this summary and decide whether to start the installation. If you want to modify any of the configuration settings at this stage, select a topic in the left navigation page and modify your choices. To continue installing Oracle Identity and Access Management, click Install. The Installation Progress screen appears.

    This installation process copies the Identity Management software to your system and creates an IDM_Home directory under your Middleware Home. You must proceed to create a WebLogic Domain, by running the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard. In addition, you must configure the Administration Server settings while creating the domain.

    If you are configuring Oracle Identity Manager (OIM), after configuring a domain, you must run the Oracle Identity Manager Configuration Wizard to configure OIM server, design console, and remote manager.

    For information about configuring Oracle Identity and Access Management products, see the following:

    For more information, see Configuring OIM Server, Configuring OIM Design Console, and Configuring OIM Remote Manager.

    Note:

    If you cancel or abort when the installation is in progress, you must manually delete the <IAM_Home> directory before you can reinstall the Oracle Identity and Access Management software.

    To invoke online help at any stage of the installation process, click the Help button on the installation wizard screens.

13.2 Understanding the Directory Structure After Installation

This section describes the directory structure after installation of Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Identity and Access Management. It also shows the structure of directories created after the Oracle Identity and Access Management software is installed.

After you install the Oracle Identity and Access Management suite, an Oracle Home directory for Oracle Identity and Access Management, such as Oracle_IDM2, is created under your Middleware Home. This home directory is also referred to as IAM_Home in this guide.

For more information about identifying installation directories, see Identifying Installation Directories.

13.3 After Installing the Oracle Identity and Access Management Software

After installing the Oracle Identity and Access Management software, you must proceed to configure Oracle Identity and Access Management products in a new or existing WebLogic domain. In addition, you must configure the Administration Server settings while creating the domain.You can use the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard to create a WebLogic domain or extend an existing domain. For more information about WebLogic administration domain options, see Understanding Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Domain Options.

See:

The "Understanding Oracle WebLogic Server Domains" chapter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Understanding Domain Configuration for Oracle WebLogic Server guide for more information about Oracle WebLogic Server administration domains.

To configure Oracle Identity Manager Server, Oracle Identity Manager Design Console, and Oracle Identity Manager Remote Manager, you must launch the Oracle Identity Manager 11g Configuration Wizard, as described in Starting the Oracle Identity Manager 11g Configuration Wizard.
