OUD 12c - How to Create a Directory Server Instance or Proxy Server Instance Using WLST / How to Start the OUD Instance Installed in a WLS Domain / How to Start WLS to Use OUDSM (Doc ID 2298807.1)

Last updated on APRIL 21, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Unified Directory (OUD) 12c, the Oracle Fusion Middleware (FMW) Infrastructure software is required to install the web administration interface, Oracle Unified Directory Services Manager (OUDSM). In 12c, OUDSM replaces the OUD 11g web administration interface, Oracle Directory Services Manager (ODSM). 

After installing the FMW Infrastructure software, OUD 12c software is installed and OUD 12c can be configured with OUDSM in a single WebLogic Server (WLS) domain or in separate WLS domains.

This note contains steps / examples for creating an OUD 12c instance and / or an OUD 12c Proxy Instance using WLST. The procedure is the same regardless of if a single domain or separate domains are created for OUD / OUDSM.

NOTE: If OUD is installed in Standalone Mode (no OUDSM) then the WLST script option is not available and the instances are created in the same way as in OUD 11g, by using the commands under PRODUCT_HOME/oud -
- oud-setup for Oracle Unified Directory
- oud-proxy-setup for Oracle Unified Directory - Proxy Server
- oud-replication-gateway-setup for Oracle Unified Directory - Replication Gateway
