The "Related Documents" section in this guide's Preface for a list of documents that provide additional information about Oracle Identity and Access Management components.

1.2.1 Upgrading to Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g Release 2 (11.1.2)

This guide does not explain how to upgrade previous versions of Oracle Identity and Access Management components, including any previous database schemas, to 11g Release 2 (11.1.2). To upgrade an Oracle Identity and Access Management component, refer to Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade and Migration Guide for Oracle Identity and Access Management.

1.2.2 Installing Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g Release 2 (11.1.2) for High Availability

This guide does not explain how to install Oracle Identity and Access Management components in High Availability (HA) configurations. To install an Oracle Identity and Access Management component in a High Availability configuration, refer to Oracle Fusion Middleware High Availability Guide.

Specifically, see the "Configuring High Availability for Identity and Access Management Components" topic in the Oracle Fusion Middleware High Availability Guide.

1.2.3 Deploying Oracle Unified Directory with Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g Release 2 (11.1.2)

Oracle Unified Directory (OUD) 11g Release 2 can be deployed in the following ways:

  • Oracle Unified Directory 11g Release 2 in an Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g Release 2 (11.1.2) domain.

  • Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g Release 2 (11.1.2) products in an Oracle Unified Directory 11g Release 2 domain.

Note:

Oracle Unified Directory 11g Release 2 installation is not covered in this guide.

For information on installing Oracle Unified Directory 11g Release 2, see the Oracle Unified Directory Installation Guide.

1.3 Silent Installation

In addition to the standard graphical installation option, you can perform silent installation of the Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g software. A silent installation runs on its own without any intervention, and you do not have to monitor the installation and provide input to dialog boxes.

For more information, see Appendix H, "Performing a Silent Installation".

1.4 Understanding the State of Oracle Identity and Access Management Components After Installation

This topic provides information about the state of Oracle Identity and Access Management components after installation, including:

1.4.1 Default SSL Configurations

By default, most of the Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g components are not installed with SSL configured. Only Oracle Adaptive Access Manager is configured with SSL. For other components, you must configure SSL for the Oracle WebLogic Administration Server and Oracle WebLogic Managed Server after installation.

1.4.2 Default Passwords

By default, the passwords for all Oracle Identity and Access Management components are set to the password for the Oracle Identity and Access Management Instance. For security reasons, after installation, you should change the passwords of the various components so they have different values.

See:

The following documents for information about changing passwords for Oracle Identity and Access Management components:

1.5 Using This Guide

Each document in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Documentation Library has a specific purpose. The specific purpose of this guide is to explain how to:

  1. Install single instances of Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g Release 2 (11.1.2) components.

  2. Verify the installation was successful.

  3. Get started with the component after installation.

This guide covers the most common, certified Oracle Identity and Access Management deployments. The following information is provided for each of these deployments:

Part II of this guide explains how to install Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Management, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Oracle Entitlements Server, Oracle Identity Navigator, Oracle Privileged Account Manager, and Oracle Access Management Mobile and Social, by using the Oracle Identity and Access Management 11.1.2 Installer and the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard.
