3 Installing Quest ESSO Controllers and Audit Databases

Quest ESSO provides a set of administration tools which allow you to:
Install Quest ESSO Controllers.

3.1 Starting the Administration Tools window

The Administration Tools window is a task-oriented interface that allows you to configure your Quest ESSO solution.
Open the root folder of the Quest ESSO installation package and run start.hta.
Browse the TOOLS directory, and run WGSrvConfig\WGSRVConfig.exe.
In the Advanced Installation area, click one of the following, depending on your Windows system processor:
Quest Software E-SSO: for 32 bits processors.
Quest Software E-SSO - x64: for 64 bits processors.
The Administration Tools window appears.
Each tool that you can run from the Administration Tools window is a wizard that allows you to perform a specific operation during the installation process of the Quest ESSO databases.

3.2 Running the Default Objects Creation Tool

Do not use the default account of your LDAP directory as the administrator account (as CN=directory manager for Netscape iPlanet/Sun Java System/Red Hat/Fedora directories), or for OpenLDAP directories, the super user defined in the rootdn directive (as cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com for example).
In the Administration Tools window, click Create default objects.
To extend the administration capabilities of the solution, click Activate advanced administration mode (for more information on advanced administration mode, see Quest ESSO Console Administrator Guide).
