OpenSSO: Subscribe and Learn

Charles Wesley, one of the QA engineers working on Federated Access Manager and related products, sent this procedure out to the users@opensso.dev.java.net 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.

Configuring OpenSSO on an Instance of Web Server 7.x Owned by webservd

When installed using the Java Enterprise System installer, Web Server 7.x creates a web server instance owned by the user webservd. In Solaris 10, webservd has a home directory of / by default. If OpenSSO is deployed to an instance owned by webservd with the default settings, the configuration will fail because the OpenSSO configurator will not create files under /. Following is a simple procedure to allow configuration on a webservd-owned web server instance to succeed.
  1. Create a new home directory for webservd
    mkdir /export/home/webservd
  2. Change the ownership of the directory to owner webservd and group webservd
    chmod -R webservd:webservd /export/home/webservd
  3. Replace / with /export/home/webservd as the home directory of webservd in the /etc/passwd file.
  4. Restart the web server instance on which OpenSSO will be deployed.
  5. Deploy the OpenSSO WAR.
  6. Configure the war file and enter /export/home/webservd as the configuration directory that will be used by OpenSSO.
So, in keeping with today's theme, I went looking for a clip of the song, The Things I Will Not Miss (aka On The List), from the 1973 musical remake of Lost Horizon. For those hoping to see Sally Kellerman and Olivia Hussey, fuggedaboutit. Here's Moshe en Joost!
