Directory Integration Platform (DIP w/Oracle DB) #oracle #idm #dip #oid

DBImport Profile: (sync w/Oracle DB table)

Important Notes:

  • Diptester utility has not been updated for 11g yet.
  • Oracle recommends setting up sync profile to DB by using command line tools instead of EM UI.

Where is the profile stored:

Profile DN: orclodipagentname=”profile name”,cn=subscriber profile,cn=changelog subscriber,cn=oracle internet directory

Which files make up the profile:

Profile Name: “Profile Name”
Properties File: “profile name”.properties (Connection Info)
Configuration: “profile name”.cfg.master (SQL Query)
Map File: “profile name”.map.master (map columns to attributes)

DIP Log Location:
Updating DBImport Profile: (After making changes to the config files you will need to update the profile)

$ manageSyncProfiles update -h hostname-p 7005 -D weblogic -pF “profile name”-f “profile properties file name”

Update the orclodipcondirlastappliedchgnum attribute in the sync profile:

// if there are any problems with the initial sync and you have to do it over … you will need to reset the last applied change number in the profile.

ldapmodify -h [diphostname] -p 3060 -D “cn=orcladmin” -w Passw0rd1 -f update_timestamp.ldif
