8 Starting and Stopping Oracle Identity Manager

This chapter describes how to start and stop Oracle Identity Manager, and how to access the Administrative and User Console. This chapter contains the following topics:


You must complete all post-installation steps in Chapter 7, "Postinstallation Configuration for Oracle Identity Manager and JBoss Application Server" before starting Oracle Identity Manager.

8.1 Removing Backup xlconfig.xml Files After Starting or Restarting

After you start any Oracle Identity Manager component for the first time, or after you change any passwords in the xlconfig.xml file, Oracle Identity Manager encrypts and saves the passwords. Oracle Identity Manager also creates a backup copy of the xlconfig.xml file before saving changes to the file. These backup files contain old passwords in plaintext. The backup file are named xlconfig.xml.x, where x is the latest available number, for example xlconfig.xml.0, xlconfig.xml.1, and so on.


You must remove these backup files after starting any Oracle Identity Manager component for the first time, or on restarting after changing any passwords in xlconfig.xml once you have established that the new password is working properly.
