Oracle Unified Directory 11gR2 Installation

I recorded a video installation guide for OUD 11gR2 on Oracle Enterprise Linux.

Start here and search for Fusion Middleware. Download OUD 11.1.2 and Weblogic server 10.3.6. Then download the Application Development Framework here. You’ll also need an operating-system-appropriate version of JDK 1.6.0.

First the shell limits must be addressed. As root, navigate to /etc/security/limits.conf and add this to the end of the file:

<user_name>              soft    nproc   2047
<user_name>              hard    nproc   16384
<user_name>              soft    nofile  4096
<user_name>              hard    nofile  65536

where <user_name> is the user doing the installing. Next unpack and install the JDK. Remember where it installs itself to; in my case it was “/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_34”. We’ll be referencing this folder throughout the guide.

Unzip the OUD archive. Reference the JDK folder above when asked for it. Choose your installation directory and let it do its thing.

Now we’ll use the weblogic installer. I used the generic .jar file. In case, update your PATH variable with

export PATH=/link/to/JDK/above/bin:$PATH

Make sure to add the “/bin” to the location of the JDK. Run the installer with “java -jar wls_generic1036.jar”. Uncheck the quickstart button when complete.

Then unzip and run the installer for ADF. It will again ask for the JDK folder.

Next configure a new weblogic domain, and choose to create it for Oracle Directory Services Manager. Configure the servers as is necessary to your needs.

That’ll do it, the directory is now ready to be configured and launched. You can configure it through the oud-setup utility in the oud_home folder.
