7.5 Only OID Without a WebLogic Domain

This topic describes how to configure only Oracle Internet Directory (OID) without a WebLogic administration domain. It includes the following sections:

7.5.1 Appropriate Deployment Environment

The configuration described in this topic is appropriate for environments that have both of the following conditions:

  • You do not want to include Oracle Internet Directory in a WebLogic administration domain for management purposes.

  • You do not want to manage Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Directory Services Manager using Fusion Middleware Control.

7.5.2 Components Deployed

Performing the configuration in this section deploys only Oracle Internet Directory.

7.5.3 Dependencies

The configuration in this section depends on the following:

  • Oracle Database

  • If you want to use an existing schema, Identity Management - Oracle Internet Directory schema existing in the Oracle Database.

7.5.4 Procedure

Perform the following steps to configure only Oracle Internet Directory without a domain:

  1. Ensure that Oracle Internet Directory is installed, as described in Installation Roadmap and Installing Oracle Identity Management Using "Install and Configure" Option.

    Notes:

    • Installing Oracle WebLogic Server is optional in this particular scenario. Instead, you can create the Middleware Home by following the procedure as described later in Step 3.

    • If you selected Install and Configure option in the Select Installation Type screen while installing Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.6.0), as described in Installing and Configuring Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.6.0) Software, the Select Domain screen is displayed.

    • If you selected Install Software - Do Not Configure option in the Select Installation Type screen while installing Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.6.0), as described in Installing and Configuring Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.6.0) Software, you must now start the Oracle Identity Management Configuration Wizard. Run <ORACLE_HOME>/bin/config.sh (on UNIX) or <ORACLE_HOME>\bin\config.bat (on Windows) to start the Oracle Identity Management Configuration Wizard. The Select Domain screen is displayed.

  2. On the Select Domain screen, select Configure without a Domain and click Next. The Specify Installation Location screen appears.

  3. Enter the following information in each field:

    • Oracle Middleware Home Location: If an Oracle Middleware Home directory already exists, enter the path to it in this field. If an Oracle Middleware Home directory does not exist, enter a path to the location where you want the Installer to create the directory that will contain the Oracle Common Home and Oracle Home directories. The Installer creates an Oracle Common Home directory and an Oracle Home directory inside the directory you identify in this field.

      The Oracle Middleware Home directory is commonly referred to as MW_HOME.

      Note:

      The Oracle Middleware Home directory is not required to contain an Oracle WebLogic Server installation.

    • Oracle Home Directory: Enter a name for the Oracle Home directory. The Installer uses the name you enter in this field to create the Oracle Home directory under the location you enter in the Oracle Middleware Home Location field. The Oracle Home directory is commonly referred to as ORACLE_HOME.

    • Oracle Instance Location: Enter the directory path to the location where you want to create the Oracle Instance directory. The Installer creates the Oracle Instance directory using the location you enter in this field and using the name you enter in the Oracle Instance Name field. You can identify any location on your system for the Oracle Instance directory—it does not have to reside inside the Oracle Middleware Home directory.

    • Oracle Instance Name: Enter a name for the Oracle Instance directory. The Installer uses the name you enter in this field to create the Oracle Instance directory at the location you specify in the Oracle Instance Location field. This directory is commonly referred to as ORACLE_INSTANCE.

    After you enter information for each field, click Next. The Specify Security Updates screen appears.

  4. Choose how you want to be notified about security issues:

    • If you want to be notified about security issues through email, enter your email address in the Email field.

    • If you want to be notified about security issues through My Oracle Support (formerly MetaLink), select the My Oracle Support option and enter your My Oracle Support Password.

    • If you do not want to be notified about security issues, leave all fields empty.

    Click Next. The Configure Components screen appears.

  5. On the Configure Components screen, select only Oracle Internet Directory. Ensure no other components are selected and click Next. The Configure Ports screen appears.

  6. Choose how you want the Installer to configure ports:

    • Select Auto Port Configuration if you want the Installer to configure ports from a predetermined range.

    • Select Specify Ports using Configuration File if you want the Installer to configure ports using the staticports.ini file. You can click View/Edit File to update the settings in the staticports.ini file.

    Click Next. The Specify Schema Database screen appears.

  7. Choose whether to use an existing schema or to create a new one using the Installer.

    Note:

    If you want to use an existing schema, it must currently reside in the database to continue with the installation. If it does not currently reside in the database, you must create it now using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility or follow the To create a new schema section mentioned below.

    Refer to Creating Database Schema Using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility (RCU) for more information.

    To use an existing schema 

    1. Select Use Existing Schema.

    2. Enter the database connection information in the Connect String field. The connection string must be in the form of hostname:port:servicename. For Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), the connection string must be in the form of hostname1:port1:instance1^hostname2:port2:instance2@servicename.

    3. Enter the password for the existing ODS schema in the Password field.

    4. Click Next.

      Note:

      If your existing ODS and ODSSM schemas have different passwords, the Specify ODSSM Password screen will appear after you click Next. Enter the password for your existing ODSSM schema and click Next.

      The Create Oracle Internet Directory screen appears.

    5. Continue the installation by going to step 8 now.

    To create a new schema 

    1. Select Create Schema.

    2. Enter the database connection information in the Connect String field. The connection string must be in the form of hostname:port:servicename. For Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), the connection string must be in the form of hostname1:port1:instance1^hostname2:port2:instance2@servicename.

    3. Enter the name of the database user in the User Name field. The user you identify must have DBA privileges.

      Note:

      If you are using Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2) or higher version, the database user should be only 'SYS'.

    4. Enter the password for the database user in the Password field.

    5. Click Next. The Enter OID Passwords screen appears.

    6. Create a password for the new ODS schema by entering it in the ODS Schema Password field.

      Enter it again in the Confirm ODS Schema Password field.

    7. Create a password for the new ODSSM schema by entering it in the ODSSM Schema Password field.

      Enter it again in the Confirm ODSSM Schema Password field.

    8. Click Next. The Create Oracle Internet Directory screen appears.

  8. Enter the following information for Oracle Internet Directory:

    • Realm: Enter the location for your realm. For example: dc=mycompany,dc=com

    • Administrator Password: Enter the password for the Oracle Internet Directory administrator.

    • Confirm Password: Enter the administrator password again.

    Click Next.

  9. The Installation Summary screen appears. Verify the information on this screen. Click Configure to begin the configuration.

  10. The Configuration Progress screen appears. Click Next to continue.

  11. The Installation Complete screen appears. Click Save to save the configuration information to a file, and then click Finish to exit the installer.

Note:

  • If you perform this installation and configuration, but later decide you want to manage Oracle Internet Directory using Fusion Middleware Control, you must register Oracle Internet Directory with a WebLogic Administration Server.

    Refer to the "Registering an Oracle Instance or Component with the WebLogic Server" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Internet Directory for more information.

  • You may see the following error message in $Instance_home/diagnostics/logs/OID/oid1/** log files after configuring Oracle Internet Directory:

    "2010-02-01T07:27:42+00:00] [OID] [NOTIFICATION:16] [] [OIDLDAPD] [host:stadp47] [pid: 26444] [tid: 0] Main:: FATAL * gslsmaiaInitAudCtx * Audit struct initialization failed. Audit error code: 62005"
