installing OID 10.1.4.2 Preview 1

Download oracle-oid-10.1.4.2.0-1.0.i386.rpm
Download oracle-xe-univ-10.2.0.1-1.0.i386.rpm

Install the rpm
# rpm -i oracle-*.i386.rpm

In SLES 10, there is no /bin/cut, let’s create a link as root to avoid a mistake when running config-oid.sh
# ln -s /usr/bin/cut /bin/cut

Run the configure script as root
# /etc/init.d/oracle-oid configure
That’s all folks! It created an Oracle XE 10gR2 database, and configured a running database. Excellent!

LDAP Server is running and configured.
$ ldapsearch cn=orcladmin dn
cn=orcladmin, cn=Users, dc=com

There is a nice video to run on linux : oracleauthenticationservices_demo.vvl
Save the file, set the display, then
$ chmod +x oracleauthenticationservices_demo.vvl
$ ./oracleauthenticationservices_demo.vvl

It shows also how to use Oracle LDAP Server OID to identify your Linux users with the preview of Oracle Authentication Service

  1. Do I get the RPMs from eDelivery or metalink?

    Also, does this support SSL?

    Thanks,
