This document shows how to uncompress a compressed xml export from the OIM interface

The user can run an xml export of a given object or number of objects from the OIM interface. This can be ran at the root level too to give a complete dump of the object model. Because of the potential size of the exported information, the output can be compressed, the examples below show two exports, one with and one without compression;

no compression

/>file /export/home/orchadm/xmlexport.out xmlExport

with compression

/>file /export/home/orchadm/xmlexport.out xmlExport compress=true

However a compressed output must be decoded in a certain way. In order to achieve this there are certain 3rd party packages that need to be installed first and available. The packages listed below will need or have dependencies on other packages too, the brackets show the actual versions used for this example and the indents show the dependencies;

The packages can be obtained from the following links;

base 64:
gcc, libiconv, make and zlib:
python: this is installed with IPSA

The examples used in this document have been carried out on a system running on Solaris 10. Note with the base64 package only a pre-compiled windows executable is available, for unix / linux systems it will need compilation (hence the dependencies)
