Last updated on MAY 22, 2023

Applies to:

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


This document goes over steps to install OUD and OUDSM in a WLS domain.

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). An OUDSM install does not require an OUD Instance. OUDSM can be installed on a separate host from OUD instances. OUDSM is used to administer OUD instances installed within a domain and can also be used to administer OUD Standalone instances.

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.
