Ensure that you use iManager 3.5.1 or higher, with the Identity Manager plug-ins installed.
To set up certificates, the driver shim communicates with the Metadirectory server using the LDAP secure port (636).
Ensure that eDirectory™ is running LDAP with SSL enabled. For details about configuring eDirectory, see the Novell eDirectory 8.7.3 Administration Guide on the Novell eDirectory 8.7.3 Documentation Web site.
Ensure that the connected system has network connectivity to the Metadirectory server.
To configure the certificate, use the I5OSDRV menu. For more information about the menu, see Section C.1, Using the I5OSDRV Menu.
If you cannot configure SSL using LDAP, you can install the certificate manually.
In iManager, browse the Security container to locate your tree’s Certificate Authority (typically named treeName CA ).
Click the Certificate Authority object.
Selectto export the certificate without the private key, then click .
Select, then click .
Click, then specify a location to save the file.
Use FTP or another method to store the file on the connected system in the driver IFS path as keys/ca.pem.
If you installed the driver using the default driver IFS path, store the file as /usr/local/i5osdrv/keys/ca.pem.
The driver must be specified as a Remote Loader driver. You can set this option in the iManager Driver Edit Properties window.
You must activate both Identity Manager and the driver within 90 days. The Driver Set Overview page in iManager shows when Identity Manager requires activation. The Driver Overview page shows when the driver requires activation.
For details about activating Novell Identity Manager Products, see the Identity Manager 3.5.1 Installation Guide on the Identity Manager 3.5.1 Documentation Web site .
For more information about troubleshooting Identity Manager engine errors, see the Identity Manager 3.5.1 Documentation Web site.
Examine the trace file.
Apply all patches for your operating system.
Ensure that the Remote Loader and Driver object passwords that you specified while setting up the driver on the Metadirectory server match the passwords stored with the driver shim.
The passwords are stored in the driver IFS path in the keys directory in encrypted files dpwdlf40 (Driver object password) and lpwdlf40 (Remote Loader password).
To update these passwords on the connected system, use the I5OSDRV menu. For more information about the menu, see Section C.1, Using the I5OSDRV Menu.
To update these passwords on the Metadirectory server, use iManager to update the driver configuration. For details, see Section 6.1.2, Driver Configuration Page.
Ensure that the correct host name and port number of the connected system are specified in the Driver Configuration Remote Loader connection parameters. You can change the port number (default 8090) in the driver shim configuration file.
To be provisioned, users and groups must be in the appropriate base container. You can view and change the base containers in iManager on the Global Configuration Values page of the Driver Edit Properties window. For more details, see Section 6.1.3, Global Configuration Values Page.
To provision identities from the Identity Vault to the connected system, the driver Data Flow property must be set to Bidirectional or Identity Vault to Application. To change this value, re-import the driver rules file over your existing driver.
The user that the driver is security equivalent to must have rights to read information from the base container. For details about the rights required, see Table 2-2, Base Container Rights Required by the Driver Security-Equivalent User.
Examine the User Base Container and Group Base Container GCV values. For more details, see Section 6.1.3, Global Configuration Values Page.
To provision identities from the connected system to the Identity Vault, the driver Data Flow property must be set to Bidirectional or Application to Identity Vault. To change this value, re-import the driver rules file over your existing driver.
The user that the driver is security equivalent to must have rights to update the base container. For details about the rights required, see Table 2-2, Base Container Rights Required by the Driver Security-Equivalent User.
There are several password management properties available in iManager on the Global Configuration Values page of the Driver Edit Properties window. Ensure that the connected system accepts passwords from the Identity Vault. To determine the right settings for your environment, view the help for the options, or see the Novell Identity Manager 3.5.1 Administration Guide on the Identity Manager 3.5.1 Documentation Web site.
Ensure that the user’s container has an assigned Universal Password policy and that theoption is set for this policy.
Ensure that theGCV is set.
To publish password change information, you must change passwords with a method that uses the Validate Password exit program. The driver obtains password change information from this exit. Administrative password resets must be performed in the Identity Vault.
If theis set, the user’s password must satisfy the password rules in the password policy assigned to the user container.
Examine the driver Data Flow setting to verify the authoritative source for identities.
Identity Vault and connected system identities must be associated before events are synchronized. To view an identity’s associations, use Modify User/Group in iManager and click the Section 6.3, Migrating Identities.tab. You can migrate identities to establish associations. For details, see
Users that own objects are not deleted unless the Remove Owned Objects.driver parameter is set. For details, see
Renaming profiles is not supported by i5/OS. The driver can optionally process rename commands by deleting and recreating a profile with identical attributes and the new name. For details, see Ignore Renames.
Identity Vault move events can remove the identity from the base container monitored by the driver to a container that is not monitored by the driver. This makes the move appear to be a delete.
