eDirectory (Dirxml Engine) to run on JAVA 1.7


Hi,

We have IDM 4.0.2 on windows. eDIrectory and IDM engine is installed on
1 server and RBPM is installed on another server. We did java 1.7
upgrade on RBPM and it was successful.

We want to upgrade the java 1.7 on eDirectory also. Please let us know
if this is mentioned in the document or let us know the procedure for
this.

We know that eDirectly on IDM 4.0.2 installed, ships with Java 1.6.

Thanks in advance.

Re: eDirectory (Dirxml Engine) to run on JAVA 1.7

The IDM 4.0 SP2 patches (around Patch 2 or Patch 3) make Java 1.7 the
default, replacing the older 1.6 version. One of the early patches had
manual steps in there too. If you go to the latest 4.0 SP2 patch (Patch 5
or so?) you'll get 1.7 automatically. It's a simple, easy install that
works very reliably. If anything goes wrong, it's likely because you're
out of disk space or you did something foolish in the past (like importing
trusted CA certificates into the JRE's cacerts truststore instead of
something separate from the JRE0.

Re: eDirectory (Dirxml Engine) to run on JAVA 1.7


Hi,

Thanks for the info.

I could find below patches.

#1 eDirectory 8.8 SP8 Patch 5 for Windows
#2 IDM 4.0.2 Engine & Remote Loader Patch 7


Our eDirectory is 8.8 SP7 (20706.00). Please let us know,

Can we apply directly #2 without #1? OR
Do we need to apply #1 and then #2?

The issue is: We used to assign users to roles in bulk every week. Ex:
1000 users will be assigned to a Role in IDM.
Earlier, in IDVault we had around 3000 users and 5000 roles. The bulk
assignment took 30 minutes.

But now, it take 2 hours. Currently our IDM has 5000+ users and 1,00,000
roles in IDVault. So we feel the volume of role might have
slow down the performance of the driver. We thought of upgrading java to
1.7 would help to increase driver performance.

Please advice.

Re: eDirectory (Dirxml Engine) to run on JAVA 1.7

The 8.8 SP8 Patch 5 page says you must be on 8.8 SP8 before applying it:

https://dl.netiq.com/Download?buildid=uq64QLv_TVc~

As a result, you'll need to patch to 8.8 SP8 and then apply Patch 5.
Assuming your eDirectory install is 64-bit (x86_64) you should not have
any problems with IDM, but if your eDirectory install is noew 64-bit, then
you'll need to reinstall the IDM engine for it to work properly after
upgrading to 8.8 SP8.

Be sure to do this in a test environment first.

Regarding performance, I doubt merely going to Java 1.7 will help you
significantly. Having 1M roles for 5K users seems a bit odd, though.
Have more roles than users isn't terribly unusual, but having 200 times as
many roles as users just seems like something is wrong.

Generic troubleshooting of performance usually starts with figuring out
where the bottleneck is. Is the CPU pegged? Are the disks? Running on
windows you're dealing with NTFS, which isn't known for speed, and
possibly with antivirus (et al.) software, which may be monitoring the
ndsd process and DIB files, and causing eDirectory to be slower.
