Java Desktop System Configuration Manager Release 1.1 Installation Guide

Installing the Configuration Manager

Before you can install the Configuration Manager you need a working installation of the Java Web Console.

ProcedureTo Install the Configuration Manager:

  1. Change to the corresponding Configuration Manager directory (“apoc”) on the Java Desktop System Management Tools CD.

  2. Type ./setup.

  3. Enter the host name of the LDAP server.

    The default name is localhost.

  4. Enter the port number of the LDAP server (default: 389).

  5. Enter the base DN of the LDAP repository.

  6. Enter the name of the object class that is used to identify user entities. The default object class is inetorgperson.

    For more details, see Organizational Mapping in the LDAP Server chapter.

  7. Enter an attribute name that is unique within the whole LDAP repository. The default attribute is uid.

    For more details, see Organizational Mapping in the LDAP Server chapter.

  8. Enter the full DN of a user who has the necessary access rights to perform queries on the LDAP server.

    Use any full DN that has read and search access. For anonymous access, leave this field empty.

  9. Enter a password for the user who you assigned the LDAP access rights to.

    If you set up anonymous access to the LDAP server, then ignore this step.

    During the installation, an additional login module is added to the Java Web Console that allows you to authenticate users through LDAP.

    At the end of the installation, the Java Web Console automatically restarts so that you can access the Configuration Manager.

    Note –

    You can modify the previous Configuration Manager settings at any time by using the /usr/share/webconsole/apoc/configure script. For example, you can use the script to change to a different LDAP server without reinstalling the Configuration Manager.
