You can install Sentinel, Identity Reporting and the Reporting drivers on the same server. However, due to the workload, NetIQ recommends installing Sentinel and Reporting on separate servers.
In case of a fresh installation, the installation program creates tables in the database and verifies connectivity. The program also installs a JAR file for the PostgreSQL JDBC driver, and automatically uses this file for database connectivity.
If you have migrated your data, for example, SIEM, from EAS to PostgreSQL database, then the installation program will connect to the existing database.
The installation program for Identity Reporting performs the following functions:
Allows you to choose an application server platform
Deploys the client WAR file (DCS and Reporting), which contains the user interface components for reporting, to Tomcat
Deploys the core WAR file (DCS and Reporting), which contains the core REST services needed for reporting
Deploys the API WAR file, which contains the documentation of REST services needed for reporting
Deploys the API WAR file, which contains the Identity Manager Data Collection Services needed for reporting
Configures the authentication services for Identity Reporting
Configures the email delivery system for Identity Reporting
Configures the core reporting services for Identity Reporting
Creates the user accounts for Identity Reporting (idmrptsrv and idmrptuser)
Creates the user accounts for interacting with Sentinel (appuser and rptuser)
