Installation and configuration of the One Identity Manager database is automatically carried out by the Configuration Wizard. The Configuration Wizard can create a new database and install the One Identity Manager schema. Alternatively, the One Identity Manager schema can be installed in an existing database.
The Configuration Wizard performs the following steps when processing the database:
Creates the required SQL Server logins and database users with permissions for the administrative user, configuration user and end user. For more information, see Users with granular permission for the One Identity Manager database on an SQL Server.
Installs the One Identity Manager schema.
Before the schema installation can take place, the Configuration Wizard tests the database. Error messages are displayed in a separate window. The errors must be corrected manually. The schema installation cannot be started until these are resolved.
All the tables, data types, or database procedures that are required are loaded into the database through migration. The selected editions and configuration modules are enabled. During migration, calculation tasks are queued in the database. These are processed by the DBQueue Processor.
When a schema is installed with the Configuration Wizard, migration date and migration revision are recorded in the database's transport history.
Compiles the system.
Scripts, templates, and processes are declared in the database. The System user authentication module with the viadmin system user is used for compilation.
Uploads files for automatic software update.
In order to distribute One Identity Manager files using the automatic software updating mechanism, the files are loaded into the One Identity Manager database.
Creates administrative system users and permissions groups.
A system user is required for authentication in One Identity Manager. One Identity Manager provides various system users whose permissions are matched to the various tasks. For more information about system users, permissions groups, and granting permissions, see the One Identity Manager Authorization and Authentication Guide.
The viadmin system user is the default system user in One Identity Manager. This system user can be used to compile and initialize the One Identity Manager database and for the first user login to the administration tools.
IMPORTANT: Do not use the viadmin system user in a live environment. Create your own system user with the appropriate permissions.
Custom system users are created as administrative system users by the Configuration Wizard. Administrative system users are automatically added to all non role-based permissions groups, and are assigned all permissions of the system user viadmin.
Installs and configures a One Identity Manager Service with direct access to the database for handling SQL processes and automatic server software updates.
The One Identity Manager Service handles defined processes. The service has to be installed on the One Identity Manager network server to run the processes. The server must be declared as a Job server in the One Identity Manager database.
During the initial schema installation with the Configuration Wizard, in the One Identity Manager database a Job server is already created for the server on which the One Identity Manager database is installed. This Job server receives the server functions SQL processing server and Update server:
The SQL processing server handles SQL processes.
The update sever ensures that software is updated automatically on other servers.
The SQL processing server and the update server require a direct connection to the One Identity Manager database to handle processes. Use the Configuration Wizard to install the One Identity Manager Service on a server for handling these processes.
The Configuration Wizard carries out the following steps.
Installs the One Identity Manager Service components.
Configuring the One Identity Manager Service
Starts the One Identity Manager Service.
(Optional) Install and configure the Database Agent Service.
The Database Agent Service controls processing of DBQueue Processor tasks. The Database Agent Service is deployed through the One Identity Manager Service plugin.
NOTE: If the Database Agent Service is not working, a message is displayed in the status bar in all the administration tools. To see this message, users must have at least the configuration user access level.
