Installing and Configuring the One Identity Manager Service in a Cluster

Installing and Configuring the One Identity Manager Service in a Cluster

The installation of server components from the One Identity Manager installation medium needs to be done on all the physical nodes of the cluster.

NOTE: When you are configuring the JobServiceDestination, the parameter "Queue" must contain the name of the virtual server.

After saving the configuration, the configuration file in the One Identity Manager Service installation directory needs to be copied to all the physical nodes. The name of the configuration file may not be changed.

NOTE: One Identity Manager Service configuration is not part of a cluster resource. Thus, each node keeps its own configuration. For this reason, it is necessary to ensure that the configuration files on the physical nodes are consistent. If this is not the case, correct functionality cannot be guaranteed after changing cluster nodes.

Setting up a Cluster Resource for the One Identity Manager Service

Set up a new cluster resource for the One Identity Manager Service in the program "Cluster Administrator" and make it online. Refer to the Microsoft Technet website (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc787285(WS.10).aspx) about this procedure. Note the following when creating the cluster resource:

  • Select "Generic Service" as resource type.
  • Select the following One Identity Manager Service dependencies.
    • Cluster IP address
    • Cluster name
    • Quorum (for example disk: D)
  • Do not enter anymore registration keys.

NOTE: After setting up the One Identity Manager Service in a cluster system it is advisable to simulate a failover so that possible problems with the cluster do not arise during live operations.

Storing the One Identity Manager Service log file on a Shared Volume
  • Set up a new cluster resource for the in the program "Cluster Administrator" and make it online. Note the following when creating the cluster resource:
    • Select "File Share" as resource type.
    • Select the following dependencies:

      - One IdentityOne Identity Manager Service

  • Customize the directory path in the Logwriter's "Log file" parameter (OutPutFile) in the One Identity Manager Service configuration file.
  • Copy the configuration file to all the physical cluster nodes in the One Identity Manager Service install directory after you have changed it.

Updating the One Identity Manager

Updating One Identity Manager

Updating One Identity Manager tools includes updating the One Identity Manager database and the existing installations on One Identity Manager network workstations and servers.

Database updates are necessary when hotfixes and service packs or complete version updates are available for One Identity Manager.

  • Hotfix

    A hotfix contains corrections to the default configuration of the current main version but no extension of functionality. A hotfix can supply patches for issues solved in synchronization projects.

  • Service Pack

    A service pack contains minimal extensions of functionality and all the modifications since the last main version that were already included in the hotfixes. A service pack can supply patches with new functions for synchronization projects.

  • Version change

    A version change means that significant extensions of functionality have been made and involves a complete re-installation. A version change can supply milestones for updating synchronization projects. Milestones group together all patches for solved issues and patches required for new features of the previous version.

To update the One Identity Manager

  1. Update the administrative workstation, on which the One Identity Manager database schema update is started.
    1. Execute the file Autorun.exe from the root directory of the One Identity Manager installation medium.
    2. Change to the Installation tab. Select the edition you have installed and click Install.

      This starts the installation wizard.

    3. Follow the installation instructions.

      IMPORTANT: Select the directory you used for your previous installation as the installation directory on the Installation settings page. Otherwise the components are not updated and a new installation is created in the second directory instead.
  2. Complete the One Identity Manager Service on the update server.
  3. Make a backup of the One Identity Manager database.
  4. Run the One Identity Manager database schema update.
    • Start the Configuration Wizard on the administrative workstation.
  5. Update the One Identity Manager Service on the update server.
    1. Execute the file Autorun.exe from the root directory of the One Identity Manager installation medium.
    2. Change to the Installation tab. Select the edition you have installed and click Install.

      This starts the installation wizard.

    3. Follow the installation instructions.

      IMPORTANT: Select the directory you used for your previous installation as the installation directory on the Installation settings page. Otherwise the components are not updated and a new installation is created in the second directory instead.
  6. Start the One Identity Manager Service on the update server.
  7. Update other installations on workstations and servers.

    You can use the automatic software update method for updating existing installations.

    NOTE: In certain circumstances, it may be necessary to update the other workstations and Job servers manually. This might be required, for example, if there are a significant number of new changes with a One Identity Manager version update, which do not allow the use of automatic update.

  8. Any required changes to system connectors or the synchronization engine are made available when you update One Identity Manager. These changes must be applied to existing synchronization projects to prevent target system synchronizations that are already set up, from failing. For more detailed information about applying patches, see the One Identity Manager Target System Synchronization Reference Guide.

You can implement automatic software updating for updating more workstations and servers.

In certain circumstances, it may be necessary to update the other workstations and servers manually with the installation wizard. This might be required, for example, if there are a significant number of new changes with a One Identity Manager version update, which do not allow the use of automatic update.

IMPORTANT:

  • Update the workstation on which the schema installation One Identity Manager database is started, with the installation wizard.
  • Update the One Identity Manager Service on the update server with the installation wizard.
