Oracle Internet Directory 11g (11.1.1.3) Certified with EBS on 15 New Platforms

Oracle E-Business Suite comes with native user authentication and management capabilities out-of-the-box. If you need more-advanced features, it's also possible to integrate it with Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Single Sign-On or Oracle Access Manager, which allows you to link the E-Business Suite with third-party tools like Microsoft Active Directory, Windows Kerberos, and CA Netegrity SiteMinder.

As a follow-on to our original certification announcement, Oracle Internet Directory 11gR1 Patchset 2 (version 11.1.1.3.0) is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i, 12.0 and 12.1 on the following additional platforms:

For Oracle E-Business Suite 11i:

  • HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit) (11.23, 11.31)
  • IBM AIX on Power Systems (64-bit) (5.3, 6.1)

For Oracle E-Business Suite 12.0.x and 12.1.x:

  • Linux x86-64 (Oracle Enterprise Linux 4, 5)
  • Linux x86-64 (RHEL 4, 5)
  • Linux x86-64 (SLES 10)
  • HP-UX Itanium (11.23, 11.31)
  • HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit) (11.23, 11.31)
  • IBM AIX on Power Systems (64-bit) (5.3, 6.1)

Two options for external authentication

Oracle Inter net Directory 11gR1 Patchset 2 version 11.1.1.3.0 can be integrated with one of two single sign-on solutions:

  • Oracle Internet Directory (OID) and Directory Integration Platform (DIP) from Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR1 Patchset 2 (11.1.1.3.0) with Oracle Single Sign-On Server and Oracle Delegated Administration Services Release 10g (10.1.4.3.0) with an existing Oracle E-Business Suite system (Release 11i, 12.0.x or 12.1.1).
  • Oracle Internet Directory and Directory Integration Platform from Fusion Middleware 11gR1 Patchset 2 (11.1.1.3.0) with Oracle Access Manager 10g (10.1.4.3) with an existing Oracle E-Business Suite system (Release 11i or 12.1.x).

Hi

There are two issues that preventing us to explore this SSO approach in the past.

The first one is licensing (issue to be discussed elsewere, not here).

The other one was the extra servers that needs to be deployed in the solution.

So, I would like to know if this set up will work if we consolidate all this extra machines in one server with Oracle VM.

Someone has tried that?

Hello Ricardo -
Sure, it should be possible to set up OID 11g on the same physical server partitioned into separate Oracle VM guests as long as there is sufficient resources available to run it and EBS together.
With respect to your question about licensing, it's not clear to me what the issue is and would suggest that you speak with your Oracle account manager for resolution.

Are there any certification with Oracle Access Manager 11g? And/or OAM 11g Basic Edition?

Posted by Robert Baumgartner on September 09, 2010 at 10:26 PM PDT #

Hello, Robert,

We are still working on our plans for certifying E-Business Suite with the upcoming releases of OAM 11g. There are several possible versions that we are evaluating right now. Stay tuned for more details, which I'll post here as soon as possible.

Hello Steven:
With announcement of Oracle's VM Server 2.0 for Sparc (Sun's ldoms), are there any plans to certify E-Business Suite on this platform ?
Thanks,
Vlaho

Hello Vlaho -
Yes we do have plans to certify Oracle VM for SPARC (LDoms) with the E-Business Suite - please continue to monitor this blog site for updates which will be posted when it becomes available.You can also refer to MOS Doc 794016.1 (Hardware Vendor Virtualization Technologies on non x86/x86-64 Architectures and Oracle E-Business Suite) for clarification on our support for it currently.
rgds,
John

Hi John,

Do you know if replacing OID by OVD with an appropriate setting given by Oracle is a supported configuration?
If no, is there any ongoing plan for such a support?.

Hi, Alban,

Oracle Virtual Directory cannot be directly substituted for Oracle Internet Directory in an EBS-integrated configuration. The E-Business Suite has hardcoded dependencies on the Oracle Internet Directory GUID (Global Unique ID) as part of the EBS session initialization routines for authenticating users with either Oracle Single Sign-On or Oracle Access Manager.

It's possible to use Oracle Virtual Directory in addition to Oracle Internet Directory. In other words, you can integrate the E-Business Suite with either Oracle Single Sign-On or Oracle Access Manager. Those authentication tools integrate with Oracle Internet Directory. Oracle Virtual Directory can then be layered on top of Oracle Internet Directory to provide metadirectory services to other applications.

We don't have any current plans to remove the E-Business Suite's dependencies on Oracle Internet Directory. This is on our list of future projects for evaluation.

Regards,
Steven
