This update is applicable for Oracle EBS UM, HR and TCA driver running Identity Manager 4.7.3 or 4.8.x. The driver version will be changed to after the patch is applied.

System Requirements Upgrading the Driver

The driver upgrade process involves the following tasks:

Updating the Driver Files

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

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

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

  4. Download and unzip the contents of the IDM_OracleEBS_4121.zip file to a temporary location on your computer.

  5. Perform the following steps based on your platform.
  6. Important: You must ensure that all the released jar files have the required read, write, and execute permissions for the user.

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

    1. Verify that <non-root edirectory="" location="">/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 UM 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-DXMLebsUM.rpm

      Perform the above step for each driver 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.

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

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