Case Study: Moving 12c Oracle Identity Manager to a New Host Using the copyBinary and CHGHOST Utilities (Doc ID 2417891.1)

Last updated on MAY 27, 2021

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version 12.2.1.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This document details the steps needed to move an existing Oracle Identity Manager installation and configuration to a new host(s) and considers only the following use case: 

If you also need to move an existing OIM database to a new host, this will need to be done as a separate exercise.  See Note.2584066.1 OIM 12c: Schema Backup and Restoration using Data Pump Client Utility, if needed.

Reference:
Changing Oracle Fusion Middleware Network Configurations

 

Note:

  • You cannot change the topology. For example, you cannot add or remove a Managed Server and you cannot change the WebLogic Server domain name. You cannot change the port numbers.
  • The paths of both the source and target instances must be the same. You cannot change them.
  • You cannot move Oracle Fusion Middleware from one type of operating system to another. You can only move it to the same type of operating system.
  • In a multinode environment, you can move or change the network configuration of each node separately. For example, if the Administration Server is on Host A and the Managed Servers are on Host B, you can move or change the network configuration of the Administration Servers, the Managed Servers, or both.
  • The chghost utility does not support environments where SSL-only is configured. SSL-only means that either the administration port is enabled or only the SSL port is enabled.
