CA Identity Manager High Availability & JBoss Clustering

Posted by gvgvasgvsz vgzavzAvv on Thursday, May 26, 2011

CA Identity Manager 12.x uses caching for transactions. The utilization of this feature can cause synchronization issues if the application is setup in a high availability mode without application server clustering.

An example I can give is a project I was involved with using JBoss as the CA IdM application server. As such I will be addressing JBoss clustering in this entry.

JBoss uses a Hypersonic database to manage internal JMS data (JMS Queues). JBoss uses the JMS queues for tracking tasks and processes within the application. It is recommended to use a shared MS SQL database for the JMS database. There are documents available online which explain how to migrate from Hypersonic to MS SQL. In my example we opted to use the same MS SQL infrastructure used by Identity Manager to house the JMS database. In simplified terms, the steps to accomplish to clustering of IdM on JBoss is as follows:

1. Create a new SQL database (JBOSS_JMS)
2. Create a user/owner for this DB (jbossjms)
3. Migrate JBoss to SQL from the Hypersonic DB
4. Bring all services back up and test to ensure the migration was successful
5. Follow the procedures in the IdM documentation to configure JBoss clustering

Configuring Design Console for OIM 11g

Posted by gvgvasgvsz vgzavzAvv on Thursday, May 5, 2011

In OIM 11g, Design Console still is a required tool for system configuration, custom development and customization. But differently from OIM 9.x, Design Console 11g does not have its own installer anymore. It is installed and configured along with the OIM server installation.

One of the common questions around Design Console 11g is: if there is no installer anymore, how do I get it working on my desktop/laptop without installing the whole Identity and Access Management pack?

This is an easy task and this post describes the steps for getting it done:

1. If you don't have a JDK 1.6 in your laptop, you will have to install it.

2. Run the configuration script for OIM once again. The script is available at $IAM_HOME/bin (where IAM_HOME is the folder where the ‘Identity and Access Management Pack’ was installed). You have to run the ‘’ that is available at $IAM_HOME/bin folder and NOT the one available at ‘$IAM_HOME/common/bin/’

3. In the configuration wizard, select ‘Design Console’ checkbox ONLY.

4. In the next screen, enter the OIM server host and port name. The wizard will configure the Design Console files for you

New Additions to the Team & an Exciting New Development in Brunswick!

Posted by gvgvasgvsz vgzavzAvv on Monday, May 2, 2011

From the desk of Leah Calnan, Director of Metro Property Management...

Well April passed as quickly as it had come and now here we are in May.

This past month we have added a couple of new members to the Metro team. Karli Wise and Danielle Burian, they each join us in an ‘Assistant Property Management’ role and we are thrilled to have them both on board.

Karli has a strong background in real estate having previously worked for many years in customer service/admin across different roles & fields including a stint in commercial real estate. Karli enjoys a busy and fast paced environment, which she feels Property Management offers and boy is she right, you are never twiddling your thumbs in Property Management!

Danielle also comes to us with experience in both reception and customer service within the Real Estate industry, she holds a Bachelor of Business as well as recently completing her Agents Representative certificate. Danielle has a passion for property and she has attended a few investment & property seminars in the past, these have opened her eyes to many potential investment opportunities. Danielle says that her Business degree has given her an “in-depth knowledge of economic and social aspects of business that I feel will assist me in my role here”.

In other news Metro is excited to be launching the completion and subsequent leasing of ‘AMIA’ in Brunswick another fantastic development by Caydon, the team that brought us ‘The Marque’ apartments in Collingwood late last year (of which we lease and manage just under 50 apartments). Metro will be holding an official launch day on Saturday the 4th of June so if you are keen to be one of the first to register to see these apartments on their very first open day then please just email Samantha Taylor our Leasing Specialist for this building at or call us on 03 9831 3000. To see some of the fantastic floor plans that will be on offer for lease with Metro please take a look at you won’t be disappointed.

And finally just a tip from us to start organising yourself for the End of Financial Year, yes it’s fast approaching. As usual if you are an owner of ours you will be receiving your ‘End of Financial Year 2010-11 packs’ with the help of good old ‘Australia Post’ by the 14th of July this year.

All in all another busy month here at Metro.

Until next time...
