2 Planning the Installation

Oracle recommends that you familiarize yourself with the components required for deployment before installing Oracle Identity Manager. Oracle also recommends that you install and use the included Diagnostic Dashboard to ensure that your system is ready for Oracle Identity Manager installation. See "Using the Diagnostic Dashboard" for details of installing the Diagnostic Dashboard.

A basic Oracle Identity Manager installation consists of the following:

This chapter contains the following topics:

2.1 Host Requirements for Oracle Identity Manager Components

This section lists the minimum host system requirements for the various components in an Oracle Identity Manager environment.

Note:

Check the Oracle Identity Manager Release Notes for the requirements and supported configurations specific to each version of the Oracle Identity Manager product.

You must obtain the enterprise versions of the application server and database software, complete with valid licenses. Oracle Identity Manager does not include this software.

The Oracle Identity Manager installation program might conflict with other installed applications, utilities, or drivers. Try to remove all nonessential software and drivers from the installation computer before loading Oracle Identity Manager. This practice also ensures that the database host can create the database schema.

2.1.1 Oracle Identity Manager Server (Host) Requirements

Table 2-1 lists the minimum host requirements for the Oracle Identity Manager server and the guidelines for a basic installation.

2.2 Planning for Non-English Oracle Identity Manager Environments

If you are deploying Oracle Identity Manager components in non-English environments, then review the following guidelines and requirements:

2.3 Installation Worksheet

Table 2-5 provides information about the configuration attributes that you must set during Oracle Identity Manager installation. Print this worksheet and use it to take notes during the installation. Enter information specific to your installation in the User Selection column.

Table 2-5 Installation Worksheet

Item Default User Selection

The base directory for installing Oracle Identity Manager

Windows: C:\oracle

UNIX: opt/oracle

 

The name or IP address of the computer where the Oracle Identity Manager database is installed

No default value

 

The TCP port number on which the database listens for connections

1433 for Microsoft SQL Server

Note: Microsoft SQL Server is not supported in Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0. See "Certified Components" in Oracle Identity Manager Release Notes for information about certified components.

1521 for Oracle

 

The name of the database for your installation

No default value

 

The name and password of the database account that Oracle Identity Manager uses to access the database

No default value

 

The JDK installation directory

Windows: C:\j2sdkversion

UNIX: /opt/j2sdkversion

 

The JBoss Application Server installation directory

Windows: C:\jboss-version

UNIX: /opt/jboss-version

 

2.4 Using the Diagnostic Dashboard

The Diagnostic Dashboard is a Web application that runs on the application server. It checks your pre and postinstallation environments for components required by Oracle Identity Manager. Oracle recommends that you install the Diagnostic Dashboard before installing Oracle Identity Manager.

2.4.1 Installing the Diagnostic Dashboard

The Diagnostic Dashboard files are located in the DiagnosticDashboard directory on the Oracle Identity Manager Installer CD media.

You must deploy the Diagnostic Dashboard Web application on your application server. For more information, see Oracle Identity Manager Administrative and User Console Guide.

Note:

If you install the Diagnostic Dashboard XIMDD application on JBoss Application Server before you install Oracle Identity Manager, you might encounter an exception when you start JBoss Application Server. To avoid this exception, set the UseJBossWebLoader property in the jboss-4.0.3SP1\server\default\deploy\jbossweb-tomcat55.sar\META-INF\jboss-service.xml file to true.

2.4.2 Verifying Your Preinstallation Environment

You can use the Diagnostic Dashboard to verify that the components required to install Oracle Identity Manager are present:

  • A supported Java Virtual Machine (JVM)

  • A supported database

  • Microsoft SQL Server JDBC libraries (only if you use Microsoft SQL Server)

    Note:

    Microsoft SQL Server is not supported in Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0. See "Certified Components" in Oracle Identity Manager Release Notes for information about certified components.
