2.3 Considerations for Installing Identity Manager Engine Components and Remote Loader

  • The Identity Manager Engine and iManager installation process requires the following minimum space for installation:

    Path

    Component

    Minimum Safe Space Required

    /opt

    Identity Manager Engine

    3 GB

    /var

    Identity Manager Engine

    5 GB for dib of 100,000 object

    /etc

    Identity Manager Engine

    5 MB

    /opt

    iManager

    700 MB

    /var

    iManager

    3 GB

    /etc

    iManager

    10 MB

  • Ensure that Identity Manager Engine is installed before installing the Remote Loader.

    If you installed Remote Loader without installing the Identity Manager engine, you must install novell-openssl-9.1.0-0.x86_64.rpm before you begin the configuration of Identity Manager engine.

    1. Navigate to the following location:

      <location where you have mounted the Identity_Manager_4.7_Linux.iso>/IDM/packages/OpenSSL/x86_64/

    2. Install the novell-openssl-9.1.0-0.x86_64.rpm using the following command:

      rpm -ivh novell-openssl-9.1.0-0.x86_64.rpm

  • You can install the Remote Loader on the same computer where you installed the Identity Manager engine. Ensure that the operating system supports both components.

  • Install the Remote Loader on a server that can communicate with the managed systems. The driver for each managed system must be available with the relevant APIs.

  • (Conditional) If you install the Identity Manager engine as a non-root user, the installation process does not install NetIQ Sentinel Platform Agent, Linux Account Driver, or Remote Loader. You must install these components separately.

  • If you install or upgrade to Identity Manager 4.7 on Open Enterprise Server 2018, you must manually install or update Identity Manager plug-ins from iManager. For more information, see Downloading and Installing Plug-in Modules┬áin the NetIQ iManager Administration Guide.
