3 Installing and Configuring Oracle Identity Management (11.1.1.7.0)

This chapter describes how to install and configure Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.7.0).

This chapter includes the following topics:

3.1 Important Notes Before You Begin

Before you start installing and configuring Oracle Identity Management products, keep the following points in mind:

3.1.1 Installation Types: "Install Software - Do Not Configure" vs. "Install and Configure"

The Select Installation Type screen in the Installer presents two options: Install and Configure and Install Software - Do Not Configure. This section describes both options:

3.1.1.1 Understanding the "Install Software - Do Not Configure" Option

Choose the Install Software - Do Not Configure option to install Oracle Identity Management components without configuring them during installation. If you choose the Install Software - Do Not Configure option, the Installer installs the component software and then closes. Oracle Identity Management components will not start running after deploying them using the Install Software - Do Not Configure option, as additional configuration is needed.

After you install components using the Install Software - Do Not Configure option, you can configure them at a later time using the Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.7.0) Configuration Wizard. To start the Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.7.0) Configuration Wizard, execute the ORACLE_HOME/bin/config.sh script (config.bat on Windows).

3.1.1.2 Understanding the "Install and Configure" Option

The Install and Configure option allows you to install Oracle Identity Management components and simultaneously configure some of their fundamental elements, such as passwords, user names, and so on. Oracle Identity Management components start running and are immediately ready for use after deploying them using the Install and Configure option.

3.2 Installing Oracle Identity Management Using "Install and Configure" Option

Follow the instructions in this section to install and configure the latest Oracle Identity Management software.

Installing and configuring the latest version of Oracle Identity Management 11g components involves the following steps:

  1. Obtaining Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Software

  2. Installing Oracle Database

  3. Creating Database Schema Using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility (RCU)

  4. Installing Oracle WebLogic Server and Creating the Middleware Home

  5. Creating the Inventory Directory (UNIX Only)

  6. Starting an Installation

  7. Installing and Configuring Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.7.0) Software

Note:

If you have an existing Oracle Identity Management installation refer to Oracle Fusion Middleware Patching Guide or Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade Guide for Oracle Identity Management.

3.2.1 Obtaining Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Software

3.2.2 Installing Oracle Database

You must install an Oracle Database before you can install some Oracle Identity Management components, such as:

  • Oracle Internet Directory

  • Oracle Identity Federation, if you want to use an RDBMS data store

For latest information about supported databases, refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations document.

The database must be up and running to install the relevant Oracle Identity Management component. The database does not have to be on the same system where you are installing the Oracle Identity Management component.

The database must also be compatible with Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility (RCU), which is used to create the schemas that Oracle Identity Management components require.

Note:

For information about RCU requirements for Oracle Databases, see "RCU Requirements for Oracle Databases" topic in the Oracle Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications document.

3.2.3 Creating Database Schema Using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility (RCU)

You must create and load the appropriate Oracle Fusion Middleware schema in your database before installing the following Oracle Identity Management components and configurations:

  • Oracle Internet Directory, if you want to use an existing schema rather than create a new one using the Installer during installation.

    Note:

    When you install Oracle Internet Directory, you have the choice of using an existing schema or creating a new one using the Installer. If you want to use an existing schema, you must create it using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility (RCU) before you can install Oracle Internet Directory. If you choose to create a new schema during installation, the Installer creates the appropriate schema for you and you do not need to use the RCU.

  • Oracle Identity Federation Advanced configurations that use RDBMS for the Federation Store, Session Store, Message Store, or Configuration Store.

You create and load Oracle Fusion Middleware schema in your database using the RCU, which is available in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) release media and on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) Web site. You can access the OTN web site at:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/index.html

For information on RCU requirements, refer to the "Repository Creation Utility (RCU) Requirements" topic in the Oracle Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications document.

Note:

Use the Linux RCU to create schemas on supported UNIX databases. Use Windows RCU to create schemas on supported Windows databases.

When you run RCU, create and load only the following schema for your Oracle Identity Management components—do not select any other schema available in RCU:

  • For Oracle Internet Directory, select only the Identity Management - Oracle Internet Directory schema

  • For Oracle Identity Federation, select only the Identity Management - Oracle Identity Federation schema

Note:

When you create schema, be sure to remember the schema owner and password that is shown in RCU. For Oracle Identity Federation, it is of the form PREFIX_OIF. You will need to provide this information when configuring Oracle Identity Federation with RDBMS stores.

Do not change the prefix provided for Oracle Internet Directory.

3.2.4 Installing Oracle WebLogic Server and Creating the Middleware Home

Oracle Identity Management requires Oracle WebLogic Server and a Middleware home directory.

For more information, see "Installing Oracle WebLogic Server" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide. In addition, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle WebLogic Server for complete information about installing Oracle WebLogic Server.

Notes:

  • If you are installing Oracle Internet Directory without an Oracle WebLogic administration domain, you do not need to install Oracle WebLogic.

  • The same user that installed Oracle WebLogic Server must install Oracle Identity Management.

  • Do not log in to the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console during Oracle Identity Management installation.

  • If you want to configure the minimum amount for Oracle WebLogic Server's maximum heap size, see Section 2.6, "Optional: Configuring the Minimum Amount for Oracle WebLogic Server's Maximum Heap Size"

3.2.5 Creating the Inventory Directory (UNIX Only)

If you are installing on a UNIX system, and if this is the first time any Oracle product is being installed on your system with the Oracle Universal Installer, you will be asked to provide the location of an inventory directory. This is where the installer will set up subdirectories and maintain inventory data for each Oracle product that is installed on this system.

Follow the instructions in Table 3-1 to configure the inventory directory information:

Table 3-1 Inventory Directory and Group Screens

Screen Description

Specify Inventory Directory

Specify the Oracle inventory directory and group permissions for that directory. The group must have write permissions to the Oracle inventory directory.

Click OK to continue.

Inventory Location Confirmation

Run the createCentralInventory.sh script as root.

Click OK to continue.


Note:

If you do not want to use the central inventory, you can create the oraInst.loc file, add the custom location of the inventory, and run the runInstaller by using the following command:

runInstaller -invPtrLoc <full location to oraInst.loc>

3.2.6 Starting an Installation

Perform the following steps to start an Oracle Identity Management installation:

Note:

You must be logged in to the UNIX operating system as a non-root user to start the Installer.

Start the Installer by executing one of the following commands:

UNIX: <full path to the runInstaller directory>/runInstaller -jreLoc <Middleware Home>/jrockit_1.6.0_24/jre

Windows: <full path to the setup.exe directory>\ setup.exe -jreLoc <Middleware Home>\jrockit_1.6.0_24\jre

Note:

The installer prompts you to enter the absolute path of the JDK that is installed on your system. When you install Oracle WebLogic Server, the jrockit_1.6.0_24 directory is created under your Middleware Home. You must enter the absolute path of the JRE folder located in this JDK when launching the installer. For example, on Windows, if the JRE is located in D:\oracle\Middleware\jrockit_1.6.0_24, then launch the installer from the command prompt as follows:

D:\setup.exe -jreLoc D:\oracle\Middleware\jrockit_1.6.0_24\jre

If you do not specify the -jreLoc option on the command line when using the Oracle JRockit JDK, the following warning message is displayed:

-XX:MaxPermSize=512m is not a valid VM option. Ignoring

This warning message does not affect the installation. You can continue with the installation.

On 64 bit platforms, when you install Oracle WebLogic Server using the generic jar file, the jrockit_1.6.0_24 directory will not be created under your Middleware Home. You must enter the absolute path of the JRE folder from where your JDK is located.

3.2.7 Installing and Configuring Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.7.0) Software
