Oracle Access Manager 11gR2 Installation

I created a video guide to help anyone trying to install the latest OAM.

Here’s some text to go along with it:

Necessary software for installation: Oracle Database (, Weblogic Server (10.3.6), RCU & OIAM (11gR2). You’ll also need a JDK installed, correct limits.conf file, and the oracle-validated package from their yum repository.

Step 1 is to install the database. Then set these parameters on it:
SQL> alter system set processes=500 scope=spfile;
SQL> alter system set open_cursors=1500 scope=spfile;
SQL> alter system set session_cached_cursors=500 scope=spfile;
SQL> alter system set session_max_open_files=50 scope=spfile;
SQL> alter system set aq_tm_processes=1 scope=spfile;
SQL> alter system set job_queue_processes=10 scope=spfile;

Restart the database for these to take effect.

Then install the OAM schema onto the DB from the latest RCU. If you’re on a 64-bit system then set the linux32 bash before trying the RCU.

Install the Weblogic server next, and then OIAM. Next is to run the domain configuration utility, and choose to configure it for OAM.

Now to create the security store by using WLST. Navigate to the folder where you installed OIAM, and then from the “common” folder contained whithin:
./bin/ tools/ -d //user_projects/domains/oam_domain -c IAM -p -m create

Now you can boot the AdminServer and the oam server from command line!
