3.4 Configuring the Identity Manager Drivers for Use with the Remote Loader

You can configure a new driver or enable an existing driver to communicate with the Remote Loader. This section provides general information on configuring drivers so that they communicate with the Remote Loader. For driver-specific information, refer to the relevant driver implementation guide at the Identity Manager Driver Documentation Web page.

When you create a new Driver object in either Designer or iManager, there are additional fields to populate to enable the Remote Loader. You add information to these same fields if you modify an existing driver.

To configure the driver:

  1. In the properties of the Driver object, fill in the following fields:

    Driver Module: Select Connect to Remote Loader.

    Driver Object Password: The driver object password is used by the Remote Loader to authenticate itself to the Metadirectory server. This password must match the password for the driver object defined on the Remote Loader.

    Remote Loader Connection Parameters: Specify the information required to connect to the Remote Loader. The parameter format is hostname=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port=xxxx kmo=certificatename, where hostname is the IP address of the Remote Loader server and port is the port the Remote Loader is listening on (the default is 8090). The kmo parameter is used only when an SSL connection exists between the Remote Loader and the Metadirectory engine; tt defines the Key Name of the Key Material Object containing the keys and certificate used for SSL.The localaddress parameter is used to specify the source IP address if more than one IP addresses are configured on the host where the engine is running.

    Example: hostname= port=8090 kmo=IDMCertificate

    Remote Loader Password: Specify the password required for the Metadirectory engine (or Remote Loader shim) to authenticate to the Remote Loader.

  2. Define a security-equivalent user, click Next, then click Finish.
