Sun Java System Access Manager 7.1 Postinstallation Guide

Access Manager amconfig Script and amsamplesilent file

The Java ES installer installs the Access Manager amconfig script and silent configuration input file (amsamplesilent) in the following directory, depending on your platform:

AccessManager-base represents the Access Manager base installation directory. The default base installation directory depends on your platform:

The amconfig script is a top-level script that reads configuration variables in the amsamplesilent file (or copy of the file) and then calls other scripts as needed to perform the specific Access Manager configuration.

Note –

On Windows systems, the corresponding files are amconfig.bat and These files are installed in the javaes-install-dir\identity\setup directory, where javaes-install-dir is the Java ES 5 installation directory. The default value is C:\Program Files\Sun\JavaES5.

The amsamplesilent is an ASCII text file that contains Access Manager configuration variables in the following format:


For example:


Before you run the amconfig script, copy (and rename, if you wish) the amsamplesilent file, and then edit the variables in the file based on your system environment and the configuration you want to perform.

For a list of the variables you can set in a configuration script input file, see Access Manager amsamplesilent File Configuration Variables.

The format of the amsamplesilent file does not follow the same format or necessarily use the same variable names as a Java Enterprise System silent installation state file.

Caution – Caution –

Variables in the amsamplesilent file (or copy of the file) can specify sensitive data such as administrator passwords. Make sure to secure the file as appropriate for your deployment.

The amconfig script reads the configuration variables in the amsamplesilent file (or a copy of the file) to perform various operations. For more information, see Chapter 2, Running the Access Manager amconfig Script.
