Oracle Internet Directory (OID) and Weblogic installation on Linux

Posted by Unknown on Sunday, April 10, 2011

Installation manual:

Basic steps:
1. Install Oracle
2. Install OID (and FMW control and ODSM)
Oracle installation is quite trivial, so let’s focus on the OID installation.
- Just remember to use the AL32UTF8 character set on the database!
You need to download:
- Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.4.
- Oracle Identity Management &

Actual installation:
1. Install WLS 10.3.4
- Run the installation .bin
* In 64 bit environments use: JAVA_HOME/bin/java -jar wls1034_generic.jar
* You need JDK 1.6 or later
- Create a new FMW home
- Register for security updates..
- Typical or Custom
- Change or accept the installation directories (df -h …)
- Summary => Next
- Installation…
2. Install OID
- unzip ../ …
- ./runInstaller
- Install Software – DO NOT CONFIGURE!
- Oracle Home Directory: This will be the directory name under Middleware Home
- Installation …
- Run root script: /middleware_home_directory/oracle_home_dir/
- Save Summary.
3. Install OID Patch Set
- unzip ../ …
- ./runInstaller
- Install Software
- Use same homes !
- Next, next
- Root script
- Save Summary
OID Configuration with FMW Control and ODSM:
1. Configuration
- Installer starts
- Create new domain
=> FMW Control is being configured to manage OID here
* User Name: WLS Admin user details
* Domain name
- Installation location
* Weblogic Server Directory
* Oracle Instance location, new “ASInstance” (Not actual Oracle Instance)
* Oracle Instance Name, new “ASInstance” (Not actual Oracle Instance)
- De-select others than Oracle Internet Directory
=> We will configure only that
- Auto configuration ports normally OK, you can select them if you want
- Create Schema
* Create ODS Database Schema
* Connect string, for example: myserver:1521:orcl
* Sys_password
- OID Passwords
* ODS Schema password & confirm (all directory content)
* ODSSM Schema password & confirm (OID statistics and DIP schema)
- OID information
* Realm, for example: dc=us,dc=oracle,dc=com
* Admin user: orcladmin
* Admin password: …
- Install
- Save Summary
* Note: Weblogic Console ie:
Verify installation:
- …home/bin/opmnctl status -l
- Alive:
* oidldapd
* oidldapd
* oidmon => LDAP port, LDAPS port
- ldapsearch -p LDAP_port -b “” -s base “objectclass=*” orcldirectoryversion
=> orcldirectoryversion=OID
Open Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control 11g
* For example:
- Find oid1 in FMW Control
- Verify version number in FMW Control
Open Oracle Directory Services Manager
* For example:
- Connect to a directory
* OID – directory name
* User Name: cn=orcladmin
* password
- Verify OID version
After you’re done installing and configuring the OID itself, you can proceed to netca to configure the destination databases “tnsnames.ora”.
That will update sqlnet.ora and ldap.ora
DEFAULT_ADMIN_CONTEXT = “ou=ora,dc=company,dc=com”
Oracle can “officially” only use OID or AD as LDAP servers.
The type can be OID or AD. The multiple servers are for redundancy; it will not try each one in turn. Then in SQLNET.ORA:
The means try LDAP first, then try TNSNAMES.ORA, then give up.
If you want to use a third-party LDAP server, Oracle has a product called Virtual Directory that will act as a proxy between them.
