5.4 Starting the Driver

When a driver is created, it is stopped by default. To make the driver work, you must start the driver. Identity Manager is an event-driven system, so after the driver is started, it will not do anything until an event occurs.

To start the driver:

  1. If you are using the Remote Loader with the driver, make sure the Remote Loader driverinstance is running.

  2. In Designer, open your project.

  3. In the Modeler view, right-click the driver icon or the driver line, then select Live > Start Driver.

For instructions about starting and stopping the driver instance in the Remote Loader on Linux and Windows, see Starting and Stopping the Remote Loader in the NetIQ Identity Manager Driver Administration Guide.
