Thought I would contribute the following after my own experience of
battling through the documentation and fora. The server i installed
onto had a standard OES 2 install on linux SLES with imanager and
remote manager installed.
How I installed the user application
note - it took me more trial installs than this describes but you can
rm -rf /opt/novell/idm until you get it right - just make sure that
you don't have anything else there before you start installing or
Firstly downloaded the iso image and organised the licensing.
Logged in as root.
mounted the iso image " mount -t iso9660 -o loop /dev/cd /mnt/tmp"
copied the linux install to my /root directory
then cd'ed to software directory /root/Identmgr
Ran the JBossmysql.bin file - pretty much accepted the defaults and
used root as the user - might be worth trying a mysql user instead.
This installs a jre in the idm directory /opt/novell/idm
Added the userapp driver into edirectory using imanager.
At this point if you have remote manager installed on the OES server as
I did - the easiest thing to do is to move the remote manager from port
8009 to 8010 - you can do this by logging in to remote manager and
there is a config button. Restart novell-httpstkd - and change any
shortcuts you have to refelect the changed port number - otherwise
jboss will not work as it wants to bind to an agent on 8009 by default
- there are other ways to fix this but the documentation is a bit
Then ran the user app install with the jre i.e.
During this install you get to configure various parameters but if you
/opt/novell/idm/jre as JAVA_HOME and also as JRE_HOME it works a treat.
it puts this path into the start-jboss.sh files so you don't have to
mess around with setting JAVA_HOME and JRE_HOME
Test various bits and then start mysql from the mysql directory i.e.
then jboss with /opt/novell/idm/start-jboss.sh
then start the userapp driver with imanager
and try to log in - should work. After this look for TID 3620160 to
start the jboss and mysql database automagically.
