Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4)
The Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (11.1) instructions and requirements for Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4) complies with the below primary certification document:
Oracle Identity Management (10.1.4.0.1) Certification Information
Below is additional information when using Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (11.1) with Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4):
Oracle Database 11g Certification for Customer Data and MRCA
All available editions of Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (184.108.40.206) or higher are supported. For specific Oracle Database certification information for your platform, please refer to the database certification documentation on Metalink Certify.
- The Metadata Repository Creation Assistant (MRCA) 10.1.4.0.1 is incompatible with Database 220.127.116.11. Therefore, customers should ensure that the Metadata Repository for Oracle Internet Directory is created on a previous version of the Oracle Database and then upgrade the version to 18.104.22.168.
- -Below are the high level steps for new Identity Management 10g installations where a separately managed database home is desired, and ultimately to be the 11.1 version:
a) Install a separate 10.2 Database Server
b) Run MRCA 10.1.4.0.1
c) Install Identity Management 10g 10.1.4.0.1
d) Apply 10.1.4.2 or newer Patchset
e) Upgrade 10.2 to 11.1 following the Oracle Database Upgrade Guide
-- The alternative is to install a full Identity Management 10g installation with a supplied 10.1.0.5 Database, apply the 10.1.4.2+ Patchset, then upgrade the Database to 11.1. (Note some newer OS versions may not be certified for a full Identity Management 10g installation).
-- Having the separate DB home for the Metadata Repository will be required for Linux x86-64 and Windows 64-bit (AMD64/EM64T) in order to upgrade a 64-bit Database (10.2) to another 64-bit Database (22.214.171.124). Since Application Server media delivers a 32-bit Database (10.1.0.5), there are issues upgrading 32-to-64, and only 64 bit Databases are supported on 64 bit platforms.
- If upgrading to 10.1.4, see the 10.1.2 section within this document. The upgrade from 10.1.2 to 10.1.4 must be performed before upgrading the associated Oracle Database to 11g.
- In cases where an Identity Management High Availability (IMHA) option is chosen, it is important to plan your future installations before upgrading the Oracle Database 11g. All potential IMHA nodes must be installed and updated with the latest patchset before upgrading the database. If a future installation of an IMHA node is attempted, it will fail to install if connecting to Oracle Database 11g. This is not a certified/supported installation.
- If Oracle Portal is not installed, you should simply apply the Oracle Application Server 10g Patchset 3 (10.1.2.3) - <Patch 5983622> (or later) before upgrading the Oracle Database to 126.96.36.199, (disregarding #3 above).
- JDBC Driver:
If strong verifier is enabled (a default setting) in the Oracle Database 11g, and you experience an ORA-01017 error when use getConnection after setConnectionCacheProperties, you should apply <Patch 5649850> update the JDBC driver. When downloading, choose the "10.1.0.5" version since the JDBC driver version in an Application Server home will be "10.1.0.5" after applying the updates from the Application Server patchset installation, (to meet #2 - #4 above).
- Oracle Discoverer Administrator:
Using the Discoverer Administrator to create an End User Layer on the 11g database for a new database user returns an error. To work around this problem, the database administrator must first create the new database user after which Discoverer Administrator can be used to create an End User Layer for the newly created database user. For more information, please refer to the Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Administration Guide .
