 1) Create ODSEE Instances and Configure Suffixes / Replication
2) Create OUD Proxy 1
3) Run netca - Creating the ldap.ora Configuration
3) Run DBCA and Select "Manage Pluggable Databases" (to register a PDB)
4) Create Shared Schema on PDB / Grant Connect / Check ldap_directory_access
5) Modify the Root User's Password Storage Scheme to AES
6) Modify the Root User's to Store the Password in AES
7) Configure TLS for LDAPS Connection Handler
8) Create Schema Mapping Using eusm
9) Check EUS config under cn=Common,cn=Products,cn=OracleContext,<SUFFIX_DN>
10) Testing EUS authentication
= ORA-01017 when running sqlplus to authenticate & result=53 (in OUD access log)
= Configure "use-specific-identity" for client-cred-mode for the Proxy Workflow Element
= Proxy Access Log when Authentication Successful -
11) Create 2nd OUD Proxy Instance with EUS Integration pointing at the same two ODSEE instances
12) Modify OUD Proxy 2 Configuration
13) Configure replication between OUD Proxy instances
a) Use "dsreplication enable" to enable replication on OUD Proxy 1 and OUD Proxy 2
b) Use "dsreplication initialize" to bring the contents of both suffixes from OUD Proxy1 to OUD Proxy 2
14) Check that OUD Proxy 2 has been initialized and replication is working
15) Add Second OUD Proxy Instance to ldap.ora
16) Test without shutting down OUD Proxy instances
17) Test failover to OUD Proxy 2

18) Test failover to OUD Proxy 1
