System Requirements

Identity Manager 4.7.2 or later

Upgrading the Driver

The driver upgrade process involves the following tasks:

Installing the Driver Packages
  1. Download the Custom Entitlements package.

  2. Open the project containing the driver.

  3. Right-click the driver for which you want to install the new packages, then click Driver > Properties.

  4. Click Packages, then click the Add Packages icon.

  5. Select the Custom Entitlements package to install.

  6. (Optional) Deselect the Show only applicable package versions option, if you want to see all available packages.
  7. By default, only the packages that can be installed on the selected driver are displayed.

  8. Click OK.

  9. Click Apply to install the package listed with the Install operation.

  10. Read the summary of the installation, then click Finish.

  11. Click OK to close the Package Management page after you have reviewed the installed packages.

Updating the Driver Files
  1. Take a back-up of the current driver configuration.

  2. (Conditional) If the driver is running locally, stop the driver instance and the Identity Vault.

  3. (Conditional) If the driver is running with a Remote Loader instance, stop the driver and the Remote Loader instance.

  4. Download and unzip the contents of the IDM47_JDBC_42.zip file to a temporary location on your computer.

  5. (Conditional) To update the driver files as a root user:

    1. On the server where you want apply the driver patch, log in as root.

    2. Navigate to the extracted <IDM47_JDBC_42.zip> file and perform one of the following actions for your platform:

  6. (Conditional) To update the driver files as a non-root user:

    1. Verify that /rpm directory exists and contains _db.* file.
    2. The _db.* file is created during a non-root installation of the Identity Manager engine. Absence of this file might indicate that Identity Manager is not properly installed. Reinstall Identity Manager to correctly place the file in the directory.

    3. To set the root directory to the location of non-root Identity Vault, enter the following command in the command prompt:
    4. ROOTDIR=<non-root eDirectory location>

      This will set the environmental variables to the directory where Identity Vault is installed as a non-root user.

    5. To install the driver files, enter the following command:
    6. For example, to install the Lotus Notes driver RPM, use this command:

      rpm --dbpath $ROOTDIR/rpm -Uvh --relocate=/usr=$ROOTDIR/opt/novell/eDirectory --relocate=/etc=$ROOTDIR/etc --relocate=/opt/novell/eDirectory=$ROOTDIR/opt/novell/eDirectory --relocate=/opt/novell/dirxml=$ROOTDIR/opt/novell/dirxml --relocate=/var=$ROOTDIR/var --badreloc --nodeps --replacefiles /home/user/novell-DXMLjdbc.rpm

      where /opt/novell/eDirectory is the location where non-root eDirectory is installed and /home/user/novell-DXMLjdbc.rpm is the home directory of the non-root user.

  7. (Conditional) If the driver is running locally, start the Identity Vault and the driver instance.

  8. (Conditional) If the driver is running with a Remote Loader instance, start the Remote Loader instance and the driver instance.
