IM10 Install and Upgrade Questions (Doc ID 2183736.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 12, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Instant Messaging Server - Version 10.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Question1: LDAP is updated on the configure command.  To avoid this, tried using the same switch that the Messaging Server product uses but to no avail:

hostA:/opt/sun/comms/im/sbin# ./configure --nodisplay --noldap --silent /var/tmp/im10/testuser/saved-state-file

Shutting Down Services ...Done.
Creating runtime directories ...Done.
Generating configuration files ................................Writing config file
Registering services with your operating system...Done.
Updating LDAP schema ...Done.

Starting Services ...Skipped.
Generating configuration files ...Done.

The configuration completed successfully.

Is there a way to run the 'configure' command with the IM install where we can specify that LDAP not be updated, like in the Messaging Server product?
Question2: The silent install file - doesn't like the hashed Directory Manager password in the file. We have to put this in clear text and would rather not have to do so.  Is that an option?
Question3: On configuring multiplexor (MMP), checking ports and acls and adding debug to the server install...  This doesn't seem to work:

hostB:/opt/sun/comms/im/sbin# ./configure --no --nodisplay --saveState /var/tmp/im10/testuser/im10-install-1

Is this a bug?
Question4: Do you have any internal docs that you can provide on what should be set on the MUX, compared to what should be set on the back end servers only?

We have lots of configurations to do and need to know if they have to be done on both mux/back-end
I have disabled the server on the front end and disabled the bac-kend mux.
However, we have the following that needs to be set per previous Oracle recommendations:


Assuming peerping on the back-end and buffer on both - is there a definitive list somewhere on what needs to be set on each of the FE/BE servers?
Question5: If we have a mixture of back-ends running IM9up5 & IM10up1, can our front ends (MUX) be both IM9up5 and IM10up1 also?
