Upgrading the Driver

The driver upgrade process involves updating the driver files.


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_LDAP_4112.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 to apply the driver patch, log in as root.

    2. Navigate to the <extracted IDM447_LDAP_4122.zip> directory 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 <non-root edirectory="" location="">/rpm directory exists and contains _db.000 file.
    2. The _db.000 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 LDAP 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-DXMLldap.rpm

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