30.2 Installing Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c

Before you begin configuring Cloud Control 12c to manage your Identity Management components, you must install and configure Cloud Control 12c on at least one host computer on your network. Oracle recommends that you install Cloud Control on dedicated host(s).

For example, if the Identity Management components are installed on host1.us.oracle.com, then install and configure the Oracle Management Service and Oracle Management Repository on host2.us.oracle.com. Install the Cloud Control 12c Management Agent on every host that includes the components you want to manage with Cloud Control.

30.3 Prerequisites for Discovering Identity Management Targets in Enterprise Manager

Before you start monitoring Oracle Identity Management targets in Enterprise Manager, you must perform the following tasks:

  • Install Cloud Control 12c Agent on each of the hosts that run Oracle Identity Management components.

    If you would like to monitor additional targets, such as Oracle Application Server, Oracle WebLogic Server, JBoss Application Server, MS Active Directory, MS IIS and databases supporting Oracle Identity Management, and you have the proper license for monitoring these targets, then install Cloud Control 12c Management Agent on these hosts as well.

  • Deploy the "Oracle Fusion Middleware" plug-in on the agents running on the hosts for Oracle Identity Management.

    1. Log in to Enterprise Manager. Navigate to Setup, select Extensibility, then select Plugins.

    2. Select Oracle Fusion Middleware plug-in and ensure that it has been deployed on the agents running on the hosts for Oracle Identity Management. See Figure 30-1.

      Description of Figure 30-1 follows
      Description of "Figure 30-1 Plug-Ins Deploy On Options"

  • After Enterprise Manager Cloud Control OMS and Management Agents are installed, complete the following steps before initiating the discovery process:

    Oracle Access Manager 10.1.4.2, 10.1.4.3.0

    1. Install Oracle Access Manager SNMP Agent on each of the hosts where the Oracle Access Manager Access Server and Identity Server are running. The SNMP Agent collects performance metrics and configuration parameters for the Oracle Access Manager Access Server and Identity Server, allowing you to monitor the various Oracle Access Manager components through Enterprise Manager Cloud Control. Refer to the Oracle Access Manager Installation Guide for instructions on installing the SNMP Agent (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28196_01/idmanage.1014/b25353/snmp.htm#CHDFBJJC).

    2. Configure the SNMP Agent and specify the Management Agent's UDP and TCP Ports as well as the SNMP Agent Community Name. Make sure that you record the SNMP Agent UDP Port and Community Name, because these details will be needed in the discovery process. Refer to the Oracle Access Manager Installation Guide for instructions on configuring the SNMP Agent (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28196_01/idmanage.1014/b25353/snmp.htm#CEGEIIFI).

      Also, refer to the Oracle Access Manager Identity and Common Administration Guide for instructions on setting up the SNMP Agent (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28196_01/idmanage.1014/b25343/snmpmntr.htm#CEGHHDBC).

    3. Enable SNMP monitoring for both the Oracle Access Manager Access Server and Oracle Access Manager Identity Server by completing the following tasks:

      • From the Identity (or Access) System Console, select System Configuration, Identity Server (or Access Server).

      • Click a link for a particular server.

      • Click Modify to display the page where you can turn SNMP monitoring on or off. Click the SNMP State On button at the bottom of the page to turn on the collection of SNMP statistics.

      • In the SNMP Agent Registration Port field, enter the port number to define or change the port on which the SNMP Agent listens.

      • Restart the Identity Server (or Access Server).

      Refer the Oracle Access Manager Identity and Common Administration Guide for instructions on setting up the SNMP Agent (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28196_01/idmanage.1014/b25343/snmpmntr.htm#BABFFDDA).

    4. Complete all the configuration steps for the Oracle Access Manager Identity Server and Oracle Access Manager Access Server. Ensure that the communication details and the directory server details are defined so that Enterprise Manager can discover the topology of your Oracle Access Manager environment.

      Refer to the Oracle Access Manager Installation Guide for instructions on configuring the Identity Server (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28196_01/idmanage.1014/b25353/id_setup.htm#CHDHIBIB) and the Access Server (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28196_01/idmanage.1014/b25353/a_srvr.htm#BGBEFBBD).

    5. If you plan to monitor the directory server through Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, then ensure that the directory server is appropriately discovered in Enterprise Manger before moving on to the discovery of Oracle Access Manager Identity Server and Oracle Access Manager Access Server. Complete the following tasks to discover the supported directory servers:

      • Oracle Internet Directory 10.1.4

        Discovery of Oracle Identity Management Suite 10g (including Oracle Internet Directory, Directory Integration Platform, Delegated Administration Server, and Single Sign-On Server) can be done using the discovery wizard on the Middleware page.
