Setting up the LDAP synchronization server

All One Identity Manager Service actions are executed against the target system environment on the synchronization server. Data entries required for synchronization and administration with the One Identity Manager database are processed by the synchronization server.

The One Identity Manager Service with the LDAP connector must be installed on the synchronization server.

Detailed information about this topic

System requirements for the LDAP synchronization server

To set up synchronization with an LDAP environment, a server has to be available that has the following software installed on it:

  • Windows operating system

    The following versions are supported:

    • Windows Server 2008 R2 (non-Itanium based 64-bit) service pack 1 or later

    • Windows Server 2012

    • Windows Server 2012 R2

    • Windows Server 2016

    • Windows Server 2019

  • Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.7.2 or later

    NOTE: Take the target system manufacturer's recommendations into account.

Installing the One Identity Manager Service with an LDAP connector

The One Identity Manager Service with the LDAP connector must be installed on the synchronization server. The synchronization server must be declared as a Job server in One Identity Manager.

Table 3: Properties of the Job server
Property Value
Server function LDAP connector
Machine role Server | Jobserver | LDAP directories
NOTE: If several target system environments of the same type are synchronized under the same synchronization server, it is recommended that you set up a Job server for each target system for performance reasons. This avoids unnecessary swapping of connections to target systems because a Job server only has to process tasks of the same type (re-use of existing connections).

Use the One Identity Manager Service to install the Server Installer. The program executes the following steps:

  • Sets up a Job server.

  • Specifies machine roles and server function for the Job server.

  • Remotely installs One Identity Manager Service components corresponding to the machine roles.

  • Configures the One Identity Manager Service.

  • Starts the One Identity Manager Service.

NOTE: To generate processes for the Job server, you need the provider, connection parameters, and the authentication data. By default, this information is determined from the database connection data. If the Job server runs through an application server, you must configure extra connection data in the Designer. For detailed information about setting up Job servers, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.

NOTE: The program performs a remote installation of the One Identity Manager Service. Local installation of the service is not possible with this program. Remote installation is only supported within a domain or a trusted domain.

To remotely install the One Identity Manager Service, you must have an administrative workstation on which the One Identity Manager components are installed. For detailed information about installing a workstation, see the One Identity Manager Installation Guide.

To remotely install and configure One Identity Manager Service on a server

  1. Start the Server Installer program on your administrative workstation.

  2. On the Database connection page, enter the valid connection credentials for the One Identity Manager database.

  3. On the Server properties page, specify the server on which you want to install the One Identity Manager Service.

    1. Select a Job server from the Server menu.

      - OR -

      To create a new Job server, click Add.

    2. Enter the following data for the Job server.

      • Server: Name of the Job server.

      • Queue: Name of the queue to handle the process steps. Each One Identity Manager Service within the network must have a unique queue identifier. The process steps are requested by the Job queue using this unique queue identifier. The queue identifier is entered in the One Identity Manager Service configuration file.

      • Full server name: Full server name in accordance with DNS syntax.

        Syntax:

        <Name of servers>.<Fully qualified domain name>

      NOTE: You can use the Extended option to make changes to other properties for the Job server. You can also edit the properties later with the Designer.

  4. On the Machine roles page, select LDAP directories.

  5. On the Server functions page, select LDAP connector.

  6. On the Service Settings page, enter the connection data and check the One Identity Manager Service configuration.

    NOTE: The initial service configuration is predefined. If further changes need to be made to the configuration, you can do this later with the Designer. For detailed information about configuring the service, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.

    • For a direct connection to the database:

      1. Select Process collection | sqlprovider.

      2. Click the Connection parameter entry, then click the Edit button.

      3. Enter the connection data for the One Identity Manager database.

    • For a connection to the application server:

      1. Select Process collection, click the Insert button and select AppServerJobProvider.

      2. Click the Connection parameter entry, then click the Edit button.

      3. Enter the connection data for the application server.

      4. Click the Authentication data entry and click the Edit button.

      5. Select the authentication module. Depending on the authentication module, other data may be required, such as user and password. For detailed information about the One Identity Manager authentication modules, see the One Identity Manager Authorization and Authentication Guide.

  7. To configure remote installations, click Next.

  8. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

  9. On the Select installation source page, select the directory with the install files.

  10. On the Select private key file page, select the file with the private key.

    NOTE: This page is only displayed when the database is encrypted.

  11. On the Service access page, enter the service's installation data.

    • Computer: Name or IP address of the server that the service is installed and started on.

    • Service account: User account data for the One Identity Manager Service.

      • To start the service under the NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account, set the Local system account option.

      • To start the service under another account, disable the Local system account option and enter the user account, password and password confirmation.

    • Installation account: Data for the administrative user account to install the service.

      • To use the current user’s account, set the Current user option.

      • To use another user account, disable the Current user option and enter the user account, password and password confirmation.

    • To change the install directory, names, display names, or description of the One Identity Manager Service, use the other options.

  12. Click Next to start installing the service.

    Installation of the service occurs automatically and may take some time.

  13. Click Finish on the last page of the Server Installer.

    NOTE: In a default installation, the service is entered in the server’s service management with the name One Identity Manager Service.

 

Creating a synchronization project for initial synchronization of an LDAP domain

Use the Synchronization Editor to configure synchronization between the One Identity Manager database and LDAP environment. The following describes the steps for initial configuration of a synchronization project. For more detailed information about setting up synchronization, see the One Identity Manager Target System Synchronization Reference Guide.

After the initial configuration, you can customize and configure workflows within the synchronization project. Use the workflow wizard in the Synchronization Editor for this. The Synchronization Editor also provides different configuration options for a synchronization project.
