One Identity Manager requires each web application to be defined in one language. If you wish to publish an application in two languages, you must install two separate applications. Web Installer installs one application per language by default.
You can define a language pool for these applications if several application are running at once. If a user calls up a web application from the language pool, he is automatically diverted to the web application which matches his language. It is, therefore, not important to declare all the web application URLs in the language pool.
This mechanism also allows you to achieve simple load balancing.
IMPORTANT: Start the Manager web application installation on the server.
To install the Manager web application

Click Finish on the last page to end the program.
NOTE: The Web Installer generates the web application and the corresponding configuration files (web.config) for each directory. The Web Installer uses default values for the configuration settings. You can keep these values. It is recommended you check the settings with the help of the Manager Web Configuration Editor.
The Manager web application is accessed via a browser front end.
Use the appropriate URL for this:
The application update happens automatically if the plugin "Auto update" is enabled for the web application.
To run an update, first load the files to be updated into the One Identity Manager database. The necessary files are loaded into the One Identity Manager database and updated when a hotfix, a service pack or a full version update is run.
The Automatic update plug-in performs a check when the application is started, and every approx. 5 minutes thereafter. New files are loaded from the database as they are identified. The plug-in cannot update the files while the application is running. The update waits until the application is restarted.
The application is restarted automatically by the web server when it has been idle for a defined length of time. This may take some time or be hindered by continuous user requests.
