Charles Wesley, one of the QA engineers working on Federated Access Manager and related products, sent this procedure out to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list. This is the type of minutiae (in a good way) that is available on the list. Plus, you can ask questions specific to your deployment, get answers, and help to review the official docs. You can join the list here - but only if you have an account. Thanks Charles for giving me the opportunity to publicize the list and for this procedure - which only needed a little formatting in its move from email to blog.

- Change the ownership of the directory to owner
chmod -R webservd:webservd /export/home/webservd
/export/home/webservdas the home directory of
- Restart the web server instance on which OpenSSO will be deployed.
- Deploy the OpenSSO WAR.
- Configure the war file and enter
