Installing Oracle Identity Management 11g R1 (11.1.1.1)

Introduction:

Oracle Identity Management enables enterprises to manage the end-to-end lifecycle of user identities across all enterprise resources—both within and beyond the firewall. With Oracle Identity Management, you can deploy applications faster, apply the most granular protection to enterprise resources, automatically eliminate latent access privileges, and much more.

Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) includes the following components:

  • Oracle Internet Directory
  • Oracle Directory Integration Platform
  • Oracle Virtual Directory
  • Oracle Directory Services Manager
  • Oracle Identity Federation

In this post we will see the installation of Oracle Identity Management 11g R1 (11.1.1.1). As mentioned before the approach for installing Oracle 11g FMW components is different then those of 10g components, I will mention the approach for installing Oracle Identity Management 11g.

Brief Installation Steps:

Following are the brief steps for installing Oracle Identity Management 11g

1) Install database 11g (11.1.0.6 / 11.1.0.7) including configuring TNS and listener

2) Create repository using Oracle RCU (Repository Creation Utility)

3) Install WLS (weblogic Server) and create a middleware home

4) Install Oracle Identity Management 11g inside middleware home

The installation will install and configure the complete Identity Management and provide the access URLs.

Download Locations:

You can download all the required software from following location

Oracle Database 11g (11.1.0.6/11.1.0.7) – http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/index.html

Oracle IDM 11g – http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/middleware/htdocs/111110_fmw.html (Download the product Identity Management)

Oracle RCU – http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/middleware/htdocs/111110_fmw.html

Oracle WLS 10.3.1 – http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/htdocs/wls_main.html

Step 1) Install database 11g including configuring TNS and listener

For this you can refer previous post for database installation and create a 11g database. Also create a listener on any available port and configure TNS for the database.

Step 2) Create repository using Oracle RCU (Repository Creation Utility)

Using RCU, you can create repository for IDM. You dont have to install RCU for using it. RCU comes as a zip file along with the identity management software download. Once you unzip you run <RCU_UNZIP>/bin/rcu binary

This will invoke a GUI. On the first page you can select “Create Repository” and click on next.

On the next page RCU will ask for database details in which you want to create the repository. The page will look as shown below

1

Once you connect to database, on the next page you need to select the repository that you want to create. Here you can select “Identity Management” as shown below. Also you can use any prefix for these schema. All these schema created will have the prefix string prefixed to it. In this case it will prepend DEV before each schema name. Note that it wont prefix anything before ODS schema. This schema is used for OID and SSO configuration.

2

Once you click on next, it will show the summary and will create tablespace if they dont exists. After tablespace creation, click on create and it will create the required repository schemas.

Step 3) Install WLS (weblogic Server) and create a middleware home

Next step is to install WLS server. Carry out the basic installation of WLS. You need to provide a new location for middleware home when asked for as shown below.

wls1

Next it will ask for the location of weblogic. Here you can accept the default value as it will be created inside middleware home.

wls2

Select all other values as default and install WLS.

Step 4) Installing IDM 11g.

IDM installation involves many steps and screens. Please follow the below screen shots for installing IDM

When you start the IDM installer, you will see a welcome screen. Click on next.

Next you will see “Install option” screen. In this screen select “Install and Configure”. Click on next.

The installer will perform the pre-requisite checks. Click on next.

In the next screen “Select Domain”, click on “Create new domain” as shown below

3

On the next screen, specify the install location inside middleware home.Click Next.

Select default values for next screen – Security Updates. Click Next.

On configure components screen, keep the default values. Click Next

On configure port  screen, you can choose Automatic port assignment. Click Next.

On “Specify Oracle Virtual Directory Information” page, provide the inputs as shown in the screen below

4

Here you need to specify the password for orcladmin. Remember the password you are setting here as you will need that at many places later. Click on Next.

On “Specify Schema Database” page, you can specify the ODS schema details that we created using repository creation utility (Step 2)). Also you need to provide ODS schema password you set while running RCU in step 2) as shown below

5

On “Create Oracle Internet Directory” screen, specify the Realm and orcladmin password. Note here that this orcladmin user is different then we say couple of screens back. This orcladmin user is for OID, where as the previous orcladmin user was for OVD.

6

Next, On “Specify OIF Details” page, specify the PKCS12 password and the domain name for OIF as shown below

7

On rest of the screen, you can specify the default value and submit the installation. The installation will complete in approximately 45 mins. Once the installation and all configuration assistants completes successfully, you can login to weblogic console.

The default port for weblogic console is 7001. So the console URL becomes

http://<hostname&gt;:7001/console

user name : Weblogic

password : As specified while installing WLS in step 3)

8

Once you login, you will see the managed servers created for OID and OIF.

Hope this helps !!

Installing Oracle SOA 11g

Introduction:

In this post we will see detailed steps to install SOA 11g. The approach used in all 11g FMW components (Including SOA) is very different then 10g. The basic limitation of any 10g component involving infrastructure was that the product itself used to create database and configure the entire infrastructure. This used to put limitation on database port which always used to be 1521.

Here in 11g version, a user has a flexibility to use any port. 11g expects installed database as a pre-reqs and uses that database to create corresponding repository. This way we can have database and listener at any port and provide that information while creating repository.

Also another important feature with all 11g components is that web server used is weblogic and it is kept as another separate component in the form of pre-reqs. So any 11g components requiring web server expects weblogic as pre-reqs. With this brief introduction about 11g FMW components characteristics we will see the installation procedure for SOA 11g.

Installing SOA 11g:

Following are the brief steps for installing SOA 11g

1) Install database 11g (11.1.0.6 / 11.1.0.7) including configuring TNS and listener

2) Create repository using Oracle RCU (Repository Creation Utility)

3) Install WLS (weblogic Server) and create a middleware home

4) Install SOA 11g inside middleware home

5) Use config.sh or WLST to create and configure SOA domain and managed servers

In case of SOA 11g, BAM also gets install and configured if selected. Here we will install both SOA and BAM

Download Locations:

You can download all the required software from following location

Oracle Database 11g (11.1.0.6/11.1.0.7) – http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/index.html

Oracle SOA suite 11g – http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/middleware/htdocs/111110_fmw.html

Oracle RCU – http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/middleware/htdocs/111110_fmw.html

Oracle WLS 10.3.1 – http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/htdocs/wls_main.html

Step 1) Install database 11g including configuring TNS and listener

For this you can refer previous post for database installation and create a 11g database. Also create a listener on any available port and configure TNS for the database.

Step 2) Create repository using Oracle RCU (Repository Creation Utility)

Using RCU, you can create repository for SOA. You dont have to install RCU for using it. RCU comes as a zip file which you need to unzip. Once you unzip you run <RCU_UNZIP>/bin/rcu binary

This will invoke a GUI. On the first page you can select “Create Repository” and click on next.

On the next page RCU will ask for database details in which you want to create the repository. The page will look as shown below

1

Once you connect to database, on the next page you need to select the repository that you want to create. Here you can select SOA as shown below. Metadata services will get selected automatically. Also you can use any prefix for these schema. All these schema created will have the prefix string prefixed to it. In this case it will prepend DEV before each schema name. Example DEV_MDS, DEV_SOAINFRA etc.

2

Once you click on next, it will show the summary and will create tablespace if they dont exists. After tablespace creation, click on create and it will create the required repository schemas.

Step 3) Install WLS (weblogic Server) and create a middleware home

Next step is to install WLS server. Carry out the basic installation of WLS. You need to provide a new location for middleware home when asked for as shown below.

wls1

Next it will ask for the location of weblogic. Here you can accept the default value as it will be created inside middleware home.

wls2

Select all other values as default and install WLS.

Step 4) Install SOA 11g inside middleware home

Installation of SOA home is again very straight. Installation of SOA will just lay down the file system, it wont configure anything. Important input while installing SOA is the middleware home location and location for SOA home

soa1

Here Oracle_SOA1 directory will get created inside mwhome directory. Rest of the inputs for SOA installation can be default.

Step 5) Use config.sh or WLST to create and configure SOA domain and managed servers

Once SOA installation is done, the last and the most important step is configuring SOA domain.

You need to navigate to <middleware_home>/Oracle_SOA1/common/bin location and run config.sh script. This script will open a new GUI window. Follow the below screen shots for configuring SOA.

soa2

Select all the required template from this screen. If you don’t need BAM installation, you can uncheck the Business Activity Monitoring template. Click on Next.

soa3

On the next screen give any domain name (soa_domain) in this case. You can keep the Domain location and Application location as default. These directories will get automatically created when this domain gets created at the end of installation. Click on Next.

soa4

On this screen, provide the weblogic password and click on Next.

soa5

On this screen you need to provide the database connection details like database name, hostname and database port. You also need to provide all the schema names and password you created using RCU. RCU will create exact 5 schemas required for SOA configuration. You need to provide details of those schemas on this screen. Once you click in next, the configurator will test the connection for all 5 schemas.

Once the connection test goes successful, you can keep rest of the values as default and create the required domain.

After domain creation start the weblogic server using <middleware_home>/user_projects/domain/<domain_name>/bin/startWeblogic.sh script

Also start the managed servers using <middleware_home>/user_projects/domain/<domain_name>/bin/startManagedWeblogic.sh script

You can then login to console using http://<SOA hostname>:<AdminServer port>/console

soa6

In the next post, I will provide the WLST details instead of config.sh for performing tasks in step 5) above.

Hope this helps !!
