Upgrading the Driver

The driver upgrade process involves the following tasks:

Upgrading the Driver Packages
  1. Download the following packages:

    1. SCIM Base Configuration package (mandatory for SCIM

    2. SCIM Default Configuration package (mandatory for SCIM

    3. SCIM Entitlement Configuration package (optional for SCIM

  2. Open the project in Designer to deploy the driver.

  3. Navigate to Help menu and select Check for Package Updates. Install the above SCIM packages.

  4. Drag the driver from Designer Pallet > Tools.

  5. Configure the driver as mention in SCIM Implementation Guide.

  6. To verify driver configuration and packages, navigate to Driver Properties > Driver Configuration > Packages.

Upgrading the Driver Files
  1. Download and unzip the contents of the IDM_SCIM_1010.zip file to a temporary location on your computer.

  2. To install the driver files as a root user:

  3. (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. The absence of this file might indicate that Identity Manager is not properly installed. You must reinstall the 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 command ROOTDIR=non-root eDirectory location in the command prompt.

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

    4. To install the driver files, enter the following command:

      For example, to install the SCIM 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/netiq-DXMLscim.rpm

      Note: In the above command /opt/novell/eDirectory is the location where nonroot Identity Vault is installed, and /home/user/ is the home directory of the non-root user.

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

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