New Online Learning Library (OLL) content

Looking to brush up on OAM or OVD skills? Want some help with OIM?
Well, have you checked our Online Learning Library (OLL) recently?

OLL is a great way to pickup new skills in short blocks of time, and there is an enormous selection, on a diverse set of products. Every month these trainings get hundreds or thousands of hits. It would be worth your while to spend some time just poking around the nooks and crannies for items that interest you.

A smattering of new OBEs and other content have recently become available, and if you haven't already, you might want to check them out:

 Also new is an Oracle University 5-day class you might want to investigate:

An OAM Advanced Administration class is in the works and should be available late summer or fall, so keep your calendar clear!

Be sure to let us know in the Comments if there is a training you would find useful.

Happy Trails :)

NEW -- OAM Information Center

Have you been admiring the Information Centers (ICs) we have created for various products, like OID, OVD and OIM?

Have you been dreaming about a day when there would be one for OAM 11g?

In that case, you will be jumping with joy!

The ICs receive HUGE numbers of hits. Our most popular one, the OIM one, has had over 12,000 hits since we implemented it about a year and a half ago. And the OID one is not all that far behind, coming up on 11,000 hits.
Our DSEE IC has helped solve almost 300 Service Requests.

Including each of the IdM products, and counting each IC article as a separate entity, we have 40 ICs.

This is the reason we have collected the most useful OAM knowledge articles, Oracle University and Documentation links, links to White Papers, OTN download site, patch information, etc, and organized it into something that might help you at any stage in your OAM environment -- from planning and installation, to troubleshooting.

So, where is this magical creature? Start here:
And if your interest has been piqued, here are starting points for our other ICs:

Have you found some content that should be listed in one of these? Please post a Comment and we'll add it.

Happy Trails :)

Quick and easy how to…

While setting up an Oracle Virtual Directory I found some useful new config and setup documents I thought I'd highlight should you find yourself in a similar administrative need.

 How To Do A Basic Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) Setup [ID 1549607.1]
This shows how to create a simple OVD setup - 2 LDAP adapters. One is AD and the other is OUD (though could be any other LDAP)

How to Setup A Simple Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) Join [ID 1549597.1]
This simple how-to shows how to configure a basic OVD join adapter setup

A couple more new documents worth bookmarking that provide very clear step by step ‘How to’ on setting up OAM with WNA:

OAM 11g WNA Step by Step Setup Guide [ID 1416860.1]
Contains great info on getting your AD/client Kerberos setup right before configuring OAM to use WNA

OAM11g Windows Native Authentication Integration against Multiple Untrusted Active Directory Forests [ID 1549605.1]
Currently there is no Oracle documentation that walks you through how to get around the problem of using multiple untrusted AD forests…until now!! This is a great step by step guide by the Oracle A-Team.
