Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Resources Reference

Adapter Details

The MIIS adapter is implemented as a database table resource adapter. Therefore, the MIIS adapter has the same installation requirements and requires the same administrative privileges as the underlying database.

The MIIS adapter can be used with the following database systems:

Resource Configuration Notes


Identity Manager Installation Notes

These installation notes assume that a SQL Server database table will be managed. If you are using a database other than SQL Server, copy the jar files required for that database. See the Identity Manager Installation Notes section of the appropriate database resource adapter for more information.

The MIIS resource adapter is a custom adapter. You must perform the following steps to complete the installation process:

ProcedureInstalling the MIIS Resource Adapter

  1. Select the Microsoft Identity Integration Server option from the Resources section of the Configure Managed Resources page.

  2. If you connect to the resource with the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Driver for JDBC, copy the mssqlserver.jar file to the InstallDir\idm\WEB-INF\lib directory.

    If you connect to the resource with the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Driver for JDBC, copy the following jar files from the Program Files\2000 Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Driver for JDBC\lib directory to the InstallDir\idm\WEB-INF\lib directory.

    • msbase.jar

      • mssqlserver.jar

      • msutil.jar

      Note –

      All connections to SQL Server must be performed using the same version of the JDBC driver. This includes the repository as well as all resource adapters that manage or require SQL Server accounts or tables, including the Microsoft SQL adapter, Microsoft Identity Integration Server adapter, Database Table adapter, Scripted JDBC adapter, and any custom adapter based on these adapters. Conflict errors occur if you attempt use different versions of the driver.
