2 Installing the Oracle Unified Directory Software

Oracle Unified Directory primarily supports two domain configurations. You can install Oracle Unified Directory either as a collocated configuration that is managed through a WebLogic server or as a standalone configuration.

Topics:

2.1 Before You Install Oracle Unified Directory

You can manage Oracle Unified Directory either from the command line or by using the Oracle Unified Directory Services Manager (OUDSM) graphical user interface.

Oracle Unified Directory Services Manager (OUDSM) requires Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle ADF, so if you plan to use OUDSM, you must install Oracle Unified Directory in a Collocated Oracle Unified Directory Server (Managed through WebLogic server) mode. When you configure Oracle Unified Directory in a WebLogic Server domain, the Oracle Unified Directory instances can be managed like any other elements of the WebLogic Server domain. To configure Oracle Unified Directory in a WebLogic Server domain, you must install the Oracle Unified Directory software in an existing Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure Oracle home.

Note:

The version of OUDSM described in this document is 12c (12.2.1.3.0). You can use OUDSM 12c (12.2.1.3.0) to manage only Oracle Unified Directory 12c (12.2.1.3.0).

You cannot use OUDSM 12c (12.2.1.3.0) to manage previous versions of Oracle Unified Directory, Oracle Internet Directory, or Oracle Virtual Directory. Similarly, you cannot use versions of OUDSM shipped with Oracle Internet Directory or Oracle Virtual Directory to manage any versions of Oracle Unified Directory.

You can also install Oracle Unified Directory in a Standalone Oracle Unified Directory Server (Managed independently of WebLogic server) mode. A standalone Oracle Unified Directory is not managed by or registered to a WebLogic Server domain. A standalone Oracle Unified Directory 12c (12.2.1.3.0) topology is installed and configured without the Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure. You install the Oracle Unified Directory software in its own Oracle home and you configure the Oracle Unified Directory instance in its own standalone domain. You can use OUDSM installed in a different location or host to manage Oracle Unified Directory that is installed in a standalone mode.

Note:

The product templates for OUD and OUDSM are not interrelated; they are independent of each other. Hence, you can configure OUD and OUDSM independently in separate domains. So, it is possible to have OUD in collocated mode without OUDSM and also you can configure OUDSM alone in a domain without OUD.

You can upgrade Oracle Unified Directory from Oracle Unified Directory Release 11g to 12c (12.2.1.3.0). See Updating the Oracle Unified Directory Software.

The installation process requires that you identify certain directories into which the software is installed. For a complete understanding of the installation directory structure, see Understanding the Oracle Unified Directory Installation Directories.

2.2 Installing the Java Development Kit

The installation of Oracle Unified Directory 12c (12.2.1.3.0) requires Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.8.

The archive binary file (.tar.gz) can be installed by anyone (not only root users), in any location that you can write to. However, only the root user can install the JDK into the system location.

For the system requirements and instructions to install JDK, see JDK Installation for Linux Platforms and JDK Installation for Microsoft Windows.

2.3 Setting the JAVA_HOME Environment Variable

After installing the Java Development Kit (JDK), you must set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the Java installation directory.

The setup scripts will not work if the JAVA_HOME environment variable is not set or does not point to a supported Java installation (JDK 8).

For example, on UNIX or Linux systems, run a command similar to the following, depending on your shell:

JAVA_HOME=/usr/lang/JAVA/jdk1.8.0_121
export JAVA_HOME

To set the JAVA_HOME environment variable on Windows systems:

  1. Go to Control Panel > System and Security > System > Advanced System Settings.
  2. Click the Environment Variables button.
  3. In the section System Variables, find the JAVA_HOME environment variable and select it. Click Edit. If the JAVA_HOME environment variable does not exist, click New.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • In the Edit System Variable window, enter path to a supported JDK installation as a Variable value:.

    • In the New System Variable window, enter JAVA_HOME as a Variable name: and enter the path to a supported JDK installation as a Variable value:.

  5. Click OK to apply the changes.

2.4 Setting the PATH Environment Variable

After installing the Java Development Kit, you must set the PATH environment variable to point to the Java installation directory.

For example, on UNIX or Linux systems, run a command similar to the following, depending on your shell:

JAVA_HOME=/usr/lang/JAVA/jdk1.8.0_121
export JAVA_HOME
PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
export PATH

For more information on how to set the PATH environment variable on Windows systems, see How do I set or change the PATH system variable?.

2.5 Obtaining Product Distributions

Oracle provides multiple locations for downloading Oracle Unified Directory and the software it requires.

Note:

  • If you are planning to manage Oracle Unified Directory using Oracle Unified Directory Services Manager, you must first install the Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure.

  • When you install Oracle Unified Directory and Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure, you must specify the same Middleware home directory. The examples in this chapter use path-to-mw-home/MW_HOME to represent the Middleware home directory.

2.5.1 Downloading the Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure Distribution

If you are planning to configure and manage Oracle Unified Directory with OUDSM, you must also install Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Application Development Framework.

2.6 Installing and Configuring OUD/OUDSM Domains

You can either install and configure both OUD and OUDSM in a single domain or OUD and OUDSM independently in separate domains.

Topics:

2.6.1 Installing the OUD/OUDSM Software

You can install OUD and OUDSM independently in separate domains or both in a single domain. This section describes how to install OUD and OUDSM.

2.6.1.1 Installing Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure

The installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure is a prerequisite if you are planning to configure and manage Oracle Unified Directory with Oracle Unified Directory Services Manager. Since OUDSM requires Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle ADF, the installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure takes care of the installation of WebLogic Server, ADF, and other infrastructure components.

If you are planning to configure and manage Oracle Unified Directory with Oracle Unified Directory Services Manager, you must install Oracle Unified Directory in a Collocated Oracle Unified Directory Server (Managed through WebLogic server) mode.

To install Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure:

  1. Set up the JAVA_HOME and PATH environment variables pointing to the JDK8 install location.
  2. Install Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure.

    See Installing the Infrastructure Software in Installing and Configuring the Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure.

2.6.1.2 Installing Oracle Unified Directory

You can install Oracle Unified Directory in two ways depending on how you want to manage it. If you plan to manage OUD through WebLogic server or OUDSM, you must install OUD in collocated mode or a single domain. However, if you plan to manage OUD independently of WebLogic server, you must choose the standalone mode or separate domains.

To install Oracle Unified Directory:

  1. Set up the JAVA_HOME and PATH environment variables pointing to the JDK8 install location.
  2. Launch the installation program by invoking the java executable from the JDK directory on your system.

2.6.2 Configuring OUD and OUDSM in Separate Domains

After the product installation is complete, you can start the process of domain creation. You can configure OUD and OUDSM in separate domains.

Note:

This is the Oracle preferred approach to set up domains for OUD and OUDSM. If you follow this approach, you can create a domain for OUDSM without depending on Oracle database.

2.6.2.1 Configuring a Domain for OUD Using the Configuration Wizard

You can configure a domain for OUD either by creating a new domain or by extending an existing domain using the Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard.

To either create a new domain or update an existing domain for OUD:

  1. Start the Configuration Wizard from the ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin directory.

    On UNIX operating systems:

    ./config.sh
    

    On Windows operating systems:

    config.cmd
    

    The Configuration Type screen is displayed.

  2. On the Configuration Type screen, perform the following steps:
    1. You can either create a new domain or extend an existing domain.

      • Select Create a new domain to create a new domain.

      • Select Update an existing domain to extend an existing domain.

    2. Enter the full path for the domain or use the Browse button to navigate to the directory in which your domains are located.

    3. Click Next.

  3. On the Templates screen, make sure Create Domain Using Product Templates is selected, and then select the Oracle Unified Directory - 12.2.1.3.0 [oud] template. Click Next.
    1. Ensure your selection is correct based on the configuration selected in Step 2.

      • If you select Create a new domain, ensure Create Domain Using Product Templates is selected.

      • If you select Update an existing domain, ensure that Update Domain Using Product Templates is selected.

    2. Select the Oracle Unified Directory - 12.2.1.3.0 [oud] template.

    3. Click Next.

  4. On the JDK Selection screen, accept Oracle Hotspot as a default selection and click Next.
  5. On the System Components screen, ignore this screen and click Next.

    Note:

    This screen provides an option to add a component. However, this functionality to add a component or an instance is not available in this release. This option will be supported in future releases.

  6. Use the Node Manager screen to enter the node manager username and password.
    Click Next.
  7. Review each item on the Configuration Summary screen and verify that the information is correct.
    To make any changes, go back to a screen by clicking the Back button or selecting the screen in the navigation pane. Domain creation or domain extension does not start until you click Create or Update.
  8. The Configuration Success screen shows information about the domain you just configured.
    Click Finish to dismiss the Configuration Wizard.

2.6.2.2 Creating a Domain for OUDSM Using the WebLogic Scripting Tool

You can create a domain for OUDSM without depending on the Oracle Database or the Repository Creation Utility (RCU) using the WLST command.

Note:

This is the Oracle preferred approach to set up a domain for OUDSM. It is recommended not to extend this domain with any other products or components. In this approach, you do not have to run config.sh.

To set up the OUDSM domain using the WLST:

  1. Launch the WLST:

    On UNIX and Linux systems:

    $ ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin/wlst.sh
    

    On Windows systems:

    C:\> ORACLE_HOME\oracle_common\common\bin\wlst.cmd
    

    ORACLE_HOME is the Oracle home directory you specified at installation.

  2. Execute the createOUDSMDomain command to create a compact domain for Oracle Unified Directory Services Manager.

    The createOUDSMDomain command includes the following parameters:

    • domainLocation is the absolute location of the domain with domain name.

    • weblogicPort is the WebLogic port.

    • weblogicSSLPort is the WebLogic SSL port. This parameter is optional and not enabled if not passed.

    • weblogicUserName is the WebLogic user name. This parameter is optional and if not passed default value is weblogic.

    • weblogicUserPassword is the WebLogic admin user password.

    createOUDSMDomain(domainLocation=<location>,weblogicPort=<value>,
    weblogicSSLPort=<value>,weblogicUserName=<name>,weblogicUserPassword=<password>
    

    Example:

    createOUDSMDomain(domainLocation="/oracle/mw_oud12c/domains/oudsm",weblogicPort=7001,weblogicSSLPort=7002,weblogicUserPassword='welcome1')
    

2.6.3 Configuring OUD and OUDSM in a Single Domain

You can configure OUD and OUDSM in a single WebLogic domain if you have selected Collocated Oracle Unified Directory Server (Managed through WebLogic server) as the installation type.

You can also configure the WebLogic domain for OUDSM using the Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard. Since the configuration wizard only supports Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS) DB store, therefore, OUDSM relies on a DB-based OPSS security store for storing the administrator configurations securely.

Before running config.sh to set up OUDSM, you must first install and configure a certified database. To use a database repository for the OPSS security store, you must use the Repository Creation Utility (RCU) to create the required schema and to seed some initial data.

2.6.3.1 Creating Database Schemas for the Infrastructure Domain Using the Repository Creation Utility

After Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure is installed, start Repository Creation Utility (RCU) from the ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/bin directory. The Repository Creation Utility enables you to create database schemas that are required for Oracle Fusion Middleware products.

Note:

This database schema creation procedure is required only if you are planning to install the Oracle Unified Directory Services Manager (OUDSM) by selecting the OUDSM template.

To create schemas using the Repository Creation Utility:

  1. Before you create the database schemas, you must install and configure a certified database, and verify that the database is up and running.

    See Database Requirements for an Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation in Planning an Installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

  2. Start the Repository Creation Utility (RCU) from the ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/bin directory.

    On UNIX operating systems:

    ./rcu
    

    On Windows operating systems:

    rcu.bat
    
  3. Click Next on the Welcome to Repository Creation Utility screen.
  4. On the Create Repository screen, select System Load and Product Load as the schema creation method and click Next.
  5. On the Database Connection Details screen, enter database connection details for RCU to connect to your database.
    1. Click Next when you are finished entering the connection credentials for your database.
      A dialog box appears indicating the progress of the installer establishing the connection with the specified database.
    2. Click OK to dismiss this dialog box.
  6. On the Select Components screen, enter a custom prefix you want to use for your schemas, and then select the Oracle Platform Security Services schema.

    Note:

    If you select Oracle Platform Security Services, all dependent components will be automatically selected.

    1. Click Next when you are finished specifying your prefix and schema names and when you are finished selecting components.
      A dialog box appears, indicating the progress of component prerequisite checking before the schemas are created.
    2. Click OK to dismiss this dialog box.
  7. On the Schema Passwords screen, specify how you want to set the schema passwords on your database, then enter and confirm your passwords. Click Next.
  8. Use the Map Tablespaces screen to configure the desired tablespace mapping for the schemas you want to create.
    1. Click Next when you are finished with your tablespace information.
      A dialog box appears, asking you to confirm the creation of tablespaces for any new schemas.
    2. Click OK to continue. A dialog box appears, indicating the progress of the tablespace creation.
    3. When the tablespaces are created, click OK to dismiss this window.
  9. On the Summary screen, verify your information, and then click Create to begin schema creation.
  10. Review the information on the Completion Summary screen, and then click Close to dismiss this screen.

    Click Finish to dismiss the Configuration Wizard.

2.7 Starting the Administration Server

After the WebLogic domain configuration is complete, you can start the Administration Server to manage the domain.

To start the Administration Server:

  1. Run the script to start the Administration Server from the following location:

    On UNIX operating systems:

    $ domain-home/bin/startWebLogic.sh
    

    On Windows operating systems:

    domain_home\startWebLogic.cmd
    

    Note:

    The domain-home for starting the Administration Server depends on how you configure a domain for OUD and OUDSM.

  2. Verify that the Administration Server is up and running by accessing the Oracle Unified Directory Services Manager through a browser. Access OUDSM through a browser, using the following URL:
    http://hostname:7001/oudsm
    

    where hostname is the name of the server on which WebLogic Server is installed. 7001 is the default administrative port for the WebLogic Administration Server.

    Note:

    Ensure that the Administration Server is up and running before you access OUDSM. When the server successfully completes its startup process, it displays the following message:

    <Notice> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000360> <Server started in RUNNING mode>

2.8 Performing an Oracle Unified Directory Silent Installation

Silent installation eliminates the need to monitor your product installation because no graphical output is displayed and no input by the user is required.

To perform an Oracle Unified Directory silent installation:

  1. Create a response file (install.rsp) in the directory of your choice using a text editor such as vi or emacs. Response file provides information specific to the installation of Oracle Unified Directory.
    [ENGINE]
     
    #DO NOT CHANGE THIS.
    Response File Version=1.0.0.0.0
     
    [GENERIC]
     
    #The oracle home location. This can be an existing Oracle Home or a new Oracle Home
    ORACLE_HOME=/home/Oracle/products/Oracle_Home
     
    #Set this variable value to the Installation Type selected. Possible values: Standalone Oracle Unified Directory Server (Managed independently of WebLogic server), Collocated Oracle Unified Directory Server (Managed through WebLogic server).
    INSTALL_TYPE=Standalone Oracle Unified Directory Server (Managed independently of WebLogic server)
     
    #Provide the My Oracle Support Username. If you want to ignore Oracle Configuration Manager configuration provide empty string for user name.
    MYORACLESUPPORT_USERNAME=
     
    #Provide the My Oracle Support Password
    MYORACLESUPPORT_PASSWORD=<SECURE VALUE>
    
    #Set this to true if you want to decline the security updates. Setting this to true and providing empty string for My Oracle Support username will ignore the Oracle Configuration Manager configuration
    DECLINE_SECURITY_UPDATES=true
     
    #Set this to true if My Oracle Support Password is specified
    SECURITY_UPDATES_VIA_MYORACLESUPPORT=false
     
    #Provide the Proxy Host
    PROXY_HOST=
     
    #Provide the Proxy Port
    PROXY_PORT=
     
    #Provide the Proxy Username
    PROXY_USER=
     
    #Provide the Proxy Password
    PROXY_PWD=<SECURE VALUE>
    
    #Type String (URL format) Indicates the OCM Repeater URL which should be of the format [scheme[Http/Https]]://[repeater host]:[repeater port]
    COLLECTOR_SUPPORTHUB_URL=
    
  2. Create the oraInst.loc file in the directory of your choice using a text editor such as vi or emacs. The contents of the file consist of the following two lines:
    inventory_loc=oui_inventory_directory
    inst_group=oui_install_group
    

    Replace oui_inventory_directory with the full path to the directory where you want the installer to create the inventory directory. Then, replace oui_install_group with the name of the group whose members have write permissions to this directory.

    For example,

    inventory_loc=/home/exampleuser/oraInst.loc
    inst_group=dba
    

    The Oracle inventory directory keeps track of all Oracle products installed on the computer. The inventory directory is stored in a file called oraInst.loc.

  3. Run the following command to perform the silent installation:
    java –jar distribution_name.jar –silent –responseFile file –invPtrLoc file
    

    For example, to install the Oracle Unified Directory, run the following command:

    /home/Oracle/jdk/jdk1.8.0_121/bin/java –jar fmw_12.2.1.3.0_oud_generic.jar –silent –responseFile /home/exampleuser/response/install.rsp –invPtrLoc /home/exampleuser/oraInst.loc
    

2.9 Configuring Oracle Unified Directory with Oracle Directory Integration Platform

Oracle Directory Integration Platform is a Java EE application that enables you to integrate your applications and directories, including third-party LDAP directories, with Oracle Unified Directory.

Oracle Directory Integration Platform includes services and interfaces that allow you to deploy synchronization solutions with other enterprise repositories. It can also be used to provide Oracle Unified Directory interoperability with third party metadirectory solutions.

For example, in an Oracle Fusion Middleware environment, where access to Oracle components relies on data stored in Oracle Unified Directory, you can still use Microsoft Active Directory as the central enterprise directory. Users of that directory can still access Oracle components because Oracle Directory Integration Platform can synchronize the data in Microsoft Active Directory with that in Oracle Unified Directory.

To configure Oracle Unified Directory, Oracle Unified Directory Services Manager, Oracle Directory Integration Platform, and Fusion Middleware Control in an Oracle WebLogic Server domain, see Configuring Oracle Unified Directory in Administrator's Guide for Oracle Directory Integration Platform.
