This topic describes how to install the Oracle Identity Management 11g software, which includes Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Oracle Identity Navigator, and Oracle Authorization Policy Manager.
It includes the following sections:
Performing the installation in this section installs the following products:
Oracle Identity Manager
Oracle Access Manager
Oracle Adaptive Access Manager
Oracle Identity Navigator
Oracle Authorization Policy Manager
The installation in this section depends on the following:
Oracle WebLogic Server
Oracle Database and any required patches
Oracle SOA Suite 188.8.131.52.0 (required for Oracle Identity Manager only)
JDK (either Oracle WebLogic JRockit JDK or Sun JDK 1.6.0)
Complete the following steps to install the Oracle Identity Management software that contains Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, and Oracle Identity Navigator:
Install the Oracle Database. Refer to Installing Oracle Database for more information.
Note:Ensure that the Oracle database is with the AL32UTF8 character set encoding.
Decide if you want to create new schemas for Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Metadata Services, and SOA Infrastructure by using Repository Creation Utility (RCU) or if you want to use an existing schema:
If you want to create a new schema using the Repository Creation Utility (RCU), refer to Creating Database Schema Using the Repository Creation Utility (RCU) for more information about creating schemas. After creating schemas, continue this procedure by going to Step 3.
If you want to use an existing schema, you must upgrade the schema by using the Upgrade Assistant tool. For more information, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade Guide for Oracle Identity Management.
Install Oracle WebLogic Server. Refer to Installing Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.3 and Creating the Oracle Middleware Home for more information.
Install Oracle SOA 11g suite if you want to use Oracle Identity Manager. For information about installing the Oracle SOA 11g suite, refer to Installing the Latest Version of Oracle SOA Suite (Oracle Identity Manager Users Only).
Start your installation by performing all the steps in Starting an Installation. After you complete those steps, the Welcome screen appears.
Click Next on the Welcome screen. The Prerequisite Checks screen appears.
If all prerequisite checks pass inspection, click Next. The Specify Installation Location screen appears.
On the Specify Installation Location screen, enter the path to the Oracle Middleware Home installed on your system. Ensure that Oracle WebLogic Server is already installed on the system in the same Middleware Home. This directory is the same as the Oracle Home created in the Oracle WebLogic Server installation.
Note:If you do not specify a valid Middleware Home directory on the Specify Installation Location screen, the Installer displays a message and prompts you to confirm whether you want to proceed with the installation of only Oracle Identity Manager Design Console and Oracle Identity Manager Remote Manager. These two components of Oracle Identity Manager do not require a Middleware Home directory.
If you want to install only Oracle Identity Manager Design Console or Remote Manager, you do not need to install Oracle WebLogic Server or create a Middleware Home directory on the machine where Design Console or Remote Manager is being configured.
Before using Oracle Identity Manager Design Console or Remote Manager, you must configure Oracle Identity Manager Server on the machine where the Administration Server is running. When configuring Design Console or Remote Manager on a different machine, you can specify the Oracle Identity Manager Server host and URL information.
In the Oracle Home Directory field, enter a name for the Oracle Home folder that will be created under your Middleware Home. This directory is also referred to as IDM_Home, Oracle_IDM1, or Oracle_IDM2 in this book.
Click Next. The Summary Page screen appears.
The Summary Page screen displays a summary of the choices that you made. Review this summary and decide whether to start the installation. If you want to modify any of the configuration settings at this stage, select a topic in the left navigation page and modify your choices. To continue installing Oracle Identity Management, click Install.
This installation process copies the Identity Management software to your system and creates an IDM_Home directory under your Middleware Home. You must proceed to create a WebLogic Domain, as described in After Installing the Oracle Identity Management Software. In addition, you must configure the Administration Server settings while creating the domain.
To configure Oracle Identity Manager Server, Oracle Identity Manager Design Console, and Oracle Identity Manager Remote Manager, you must launch the Oracle Identity Management 11g Configuration Wizard, as described in Starting the Oracle Identity Manager 11g Configuration Wizard.
Note:If you cancel or abort when the installation is in progress, you must manually delete the
<IDM_Home>directory before you can reinstall the Oracle Identity Management software.
To invoke online help at any stage of the installation process, click the Help button on the installation wizard screens.
