Data Repository Difference Between Access Manager WAR and JES Installs
By docteger on Oct 22, 2007
There is a difference in how Access Manager is configured after deployment using the new WAR-based distribution as compared to the JES package-based installation (performed by the JES Installer) previously used. When Access Manager is installed using JES, by default, it is configured for LDAP authentication and has all its data defined in an LDAP directory. The LDAP tree contains thousands of records including configuration data (which includes administrator users and agent profiles) and sample user entry trees. When Access Manager is installed using the WAR file, by default, it is configured to use Data Store authentication. Additionally,the sample user data is stored in a flat file and, unless otherwise specified on the configurator page, Access Manager configuration data is also stored in the flat file. You can reconfigure an Access Manager realm to retrieve data from an LDAPv3-compliant directory after the fact but be sure to load the Access Manager schema during WAR configuration.
