ODSEE 11gR1 PS2 Released: Download and update today !

We released Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11gR1PS2 today !

ODSEE 11g Release 1 Patch Set 2 (11.1.1.7.0) allows companies to grow faster and easier. The significant improvement in performance over previous Sun DSEE 5.2 and 6.x releases allows companies to accelerate their applications while reducing their total cost of ownership. Companies can also reduce cost through improved serviceability and manageability with increased performances and smooth in-place upgrade reusing existing data store. This complete solution provides a directory server, proxy server (for high availability and distribution of data and load) , web console and synchronization with Active Directory, all under one product (ODSEE) and licensed as part of Oracle Directory Services Plus.

This release is a Patch Set to ODSEE 11gR1 and Sun DSEE 7.0. In addition to multiple fixes released in previous Patch Set and hot fixes, ODSEE 11g Release 1 Patch Set 2 includes among other new features:

Synchronizing ODSEE and OUD

When it comes to synchronizing between Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition (ODSEE) and Oracle Unified Directory (OUD), what options are available and can be exercised?

Several options are available. You can use:

  • The OUD internal capability called the Replication Gateway.
  • The synchronization tool, called the Directory Integration Platform, which is a part of Oracle Directory Services Plus.
  • The manual export and import method.

Now, let's evaluate the pros and cons of each method.

Replication Gateway is the default out-of-the-box solution to perform the replication and include OUD instances in an existing ODSEE replication topology.

This feature came into existence, because it works at the replication protocol level. The gateway performs the required adaptation of replication protocols between ODSEE and OUD.

The main advantage  of this feature is that it provides strong consistency between the two types of directories. This fully leverages conflict management implemented in the replication protocols to ensure that changes are applied in a coherent and ordered manner under all circumstance. It does not require specific modification on existing ODSEE production instances, such as enabling retro changelog. Changes are propagated at near speed of replication in both directions.  As full meta-data are replicated by the Replication gateway, it will also synchronize internal password policy states, ensuring proper account locking and optimal conflict resolution.

OUD replication gateway does not require any specific tool or installation-specific procedure. It is installed like any OUD component and then managed like any other OUD component.

OUD Replication Gateway does not perform data adaptation between ODSEE and OUD.

Using Directory Integration Platform as the synchronization tool.

This brings flexibility in remapping and transformation between ODSEE and OUD.

However, you need to pay a price to use a tool (like DIP) to perform the synchronization task. You need to enable the retro change log to access the changes on the ODSEE side. This in turn has an impact on the disk , CPU usage and performances, which could be a serious challenge for your existing ODSEE environment, if you have not provisioned additional hardware and instances.

Using export and import method with standard directory administrative commands.

This seems very simple, but this methodology cannot ensure an highly-available deployment with up-to-date entries on both sides.

This solution can be used if full high availability with up-to-date data at any time is not needed. It is often used  if data cleaning needs to take place to avoid polluting a new environment with old unnecessary data.

Webcast: Sun2Oracle: Upgrading from DSEE to the next generation Oracle Unified Directory

Interested in upgrading from DSEE to OUD?

Register to learn from one customer.

Oracle Corporation
Oracle Security Solutions
We can improve our security and compliance,
at the same time we’re cutting costs and complexity.

Sun2Oracle: Upgrading from DSEE to the next generation Oracle Unified Directory

Oracle Unified Directory (OUD) is the world’s first unified directory solution with highly integrated storage, synchronization, and proxy capabilities. These capabilities help meet the evolving needs of enterprise architectures. OUD customers can lower the cost of administration and ownership by maintaining a single directory for all of their enterprise needs, while also simplifying their enterprise architecture.

OUD is optimized for mobile and cloud computing environments where elastic scalability becomes critical as service providers need a solution that can scale by dynamically adding more directory instances without re-architecting their solutions to support exponential business growth.

Join us for this webcast and you will:

  • Learn from one customer that has successfully upgraded to the new platform
  • See what technology and business drivers influenced the upgrade
  • Hear about the benefits of OUD’s elastic scalability and unparalleled performance
  • Get additional information and resources for planning an upgrade
