After completing the steps described in Running the Installation Program
The Select components to install list contains only those Connector components that have not yet been installed. For example, after you install the Directory Server Connector (dc=example,dc=com), the program will remove the entry from the list pane.Table 8–1 Directory Source Examples
Sun Java System Directory Server
Windows NT SAM
Enable the button next to the Directory Server Connector component and then click Next.
The Directory Server Connector Credentials panel is displayed.
The program automatically completes the User DN fields with your fully qualified Directory Manager distinguished name, but you can change the information if necessary.
Enter the following information:
Primary Directory Server User DN: If necessary, change the default user DN by entering a fully qualified Directory Manager distinguished name.
Primary Directory Server Password: Enter your Directory Manager password.
If you are using a secondary master, the Secondary Directory Server User Name and Password fields will be active. The program automatically completes the Directory Manager DN field with the same entries provided for the Primary Directory Server User DN and Password fields. You can change this information if necessary.
The program will verify that the Directory Server was prepared and ready to synchronize data. When you prepared Directory Server (Preparing Sun Directory Source), the program creates an account that the Connector will use to connect to Directory Server (for example, uid=PSWConnector,suffix).
Click Next to proceed to the Connector Port Configuration pane.
Enter the Fully Qualified Local Host Name with the domain and an available port number where the Connector will listen. (Specifying a port already in use will result in an error message.)
Click Next and the Ready to Install pane is displayed to provide information about the Connector’s installation location and how much disk space is required for the installation. When you are ready, click the Install Now button.
If you installed Core on the local machine, the Ready to Install pane will indicate that zero space is required to install the Connector. This situation occurs because the Core installation has already installed the Connector binaries. Because there are no additional binaries to install, no additional space is required.
If you are installing the Connector on a machine other than where you installed Core, then the Ready to Install pane will indicate how much space is required to complete the Connector installation on the local machine.
The Connector installation is accomplished in two steps:
An Installing pane is displayed, with a progress bar, while the program installs the binaries.
Next, the Component Configuration pane displays a progress bar. This step takes several minutes to complete.
If you did not close the Console before starting the installation, the following warning displays (Installing the Directory Server Connector). Click Reset in the Console to reload the Connector’s configuration settings.
When both steps are complete, an Installation Summary pane is displayed.
Directory Server plugin gets configured for preferred and secondary hosts (if any).
Clicking Yes configures the Directory Server plugin in all the hosts (preferred and secondary).
Clicking No enables you to configure the plugin later using command line idsync dspluginconfig. For more information, see Appendix A, Using the Identity Synchronization for Windows Command Line Utilities.
On Solaris: Installation logs are written to /var/sadm/install/logs/
On Linux: Installation logs are written to /var/sadm/install/logs/
On some Windows systems (such as Windows 2000 Advanced Server), the Local Settings folder is a hidden folder.
To view this folder and the Temp subdirectory, open your Windows Explorer and select Tools -> Folder Options from the menu bar. When the Folder Options dialog box is displayed, select the View tab and enable the Show Hidden Files option.
When you are done with the panel, click Finished.
After installing the Directory Server Connector, you can install other Connectors that you configured when you configured the resources (Chapter 7, Configuring Core Resources):
Install an Active Directory Connector: Go to Installing an Active Directory Connector.
Install a Windows NT Connector: Go to Installing the Windows NT Connector.
This configuration is needed only when the chained suffix exists in the Directory Server instance where Identity Synchronization for Windows Plug-in is installed. If Identity Synchronization for Windows Plug-in is not configured to search on chained suffix, MODIFY and BIND operations performed on the Directory Server where the Identity Synchronization for Windows Plug-in is installed, will fail.
In the Directory Server instance where the chained suffix is created, perform the following operations:
Execute the following LDIF script using ldapmodify utility:
dn: cn=config,cn=chaining database,cn=plugins,cn=config changetype: modify add: nspossiblechainingcomponents nspossiblechainingcomponents: cn=pswsync,cn=plugins,cn=config
You can perform the similar operation by using the following procedure:
Select the Configuration tab.
Click the Data node that displays in the left pane.
Select the Chaining tab in the right pane.
Add Identity Synchronization for Windows Plug-in (cn=pswsync,cn=plugins,cn=config) to the components that are allowed to chain.
Save the changes and exit.
