Step By Step Installation and Configuration of Tivoli Directory Server 6.3 on RHEL

Activity : High Level Steps for Installation and basic Configuration of  Tivoli Directory Server 6.3 on Linux RHEL

Environment : Redhat Linux 5.6 64 Bit
TDS Version : Tivoli Directory Server 6.3
Software File: tds63-linux-x86-64.iso

Step 1: Login to the Passport Advantage and download the TDS Software “tds63-linux-x86-64.iso

Step 2: Copy the software “tds63-linux-x86-64.iso” to the Linux Server

InstallTDS

InstallTDS1

Login to the TDS Server on the GUI Console or enable X11 forwarding to enable the GUI mode for the installation

Step 3: Mount the tds63-linux-x86-64.iso as a loop on the /mnt location using mount command

[root@connections IBMSoftware]# mount -o loop tds63-linux-x86-64.iso /mnt/

InstallTDS3
Step 4 :Navigate to the tds folder in the /mnt

login as: root
[root@connections2 ~]# cd /mnt/
[root@connections2 mnt]# ls -ltr

InstallTDS5

Step 5 :Execute the install_tds.bin folder

InstallTDS6

Step 6 : Select the English Language

InstallTDS7

Step 7 :The Install Shield Wizard opens up .. Click Next

InstallTDS8

 Step 8 : Accept the License

InstallTDS9

Step 9: Select the “Custom” Option

InstallTDS10

Step 10 : We can select the options available like

DB2 ( It is needed for the TDS . The user details , tree structure etc are all stored in the DB2 Database)
Tivoli Global Security Kit
Embedded Websphere Application Server  ( for the Web based administration )
etc
InstallTDS11

Step 11 :It provides the Summary of the path where the installation of various components would take place .
Click Install

InstallTDS12

Step 12 : It will take some time . the progress bar will display the components which are getting installed

InstallTDS13

InstallTDS14png

Step 13 :Once the Installation the TDS Instance Administration tool will open up
We need to create a new TDS instance ..

NOTE : you can launch the TDS Instance Administration tool using the idsxinst command too

[root@connections ~]# cd /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.3/sbin/
[root@connections sbin]# ./idsxinst

This tool will create the TDS Instance . Also note that this wizard will also create a DB instance

InstallTDS15

Step 14 :Check “Create the Instance “ Option

InstallTDS16

Step 15 : We will create a Default Instance

InstallTDS18

Step 16 : Update the passwords for the instance ( Please set a more complex password )
I have set password as “password
Encryption seed : qwertyqwerty
Administration DN password : password

Then Click Next

InstallTDS19
Step 17 :The Default Instance created is “dsrdbm01

InstallTDS20

Once done , Click Finish

It would take some time , Be patient ( you could view the logs on the console too )

InstallTDS21

Step 18 :The Task Completed Message would be prompted when its finished

InstallTDS22

Click Close

Step 19 : We can see the dsrdbm01 Instance Created

InstallTDS23

But you need to have X11 forwarding enabled on the Putty or the GUI mode for the Linux

Step 20 :Once the TDS Administration tool is launched

We observe that the TDS Instance Server is stopped state and TDS Administration Server is started state

To start the TDS Instance Server click on “Start/Stop”

InstallTDS23

Step 21 :Click the “Start Server” button

 

InstallTDS24
InstallTDS25

InstallTDS26

Step 22 : To View the details of the ports .. Click the View Button on the TDS Administration tool

InstallTDS26

InstallTDS29

Step 23 :To change the TDS Admin password :

In the TDS Administration tool >> Click on Manage

InstallTDS30
It will launch the TDS Configuration Tool

NOTE : To launch the TDS configuration tool you can navigate to /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.3/sbin/idsxcfg
[root@connections ~]# cd /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.3/sbin/
[root@connections sbin]# ./idsxcfg

Click on “Manage Administrator password “
Set the password

InstallTDS31

we need to restart the TDS Instance Server which will be prompted

InstallTDS32

 

These are the steps to install and create a Tivoli Directory Server Instances

Some Important Commands
Note : In our case “LDAP Install directory” is /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.3/sbin/
a) Starting an instance                     LDAP Install directory/sbin/idsslapd -I
b) Stopping an instance                   LDAP Install directory/bin/ibmdirctl stop -h [IP of the Server] -D cn=root -w password
Or
c) Stopping an instance                   LDAP Install directory/sbin/idsslapd -I -k
d) Checking an instance                  LDAP Install directory/bin/ibmdirctl status -h localhost -D cn=root -w password
e) Displaying list of instances        LDAP Install directory/sbin/idsilist
f) Loading the instance administration tool                         LDAP Install directory/sbin/idsxinst
g) Loading the configuration tool for an instance                    LDAP Install directory/sbin/idsxcfg -I 

 

 

==================================
==================================

Launch  WEB Admin Client

 

Note : Ensure that the Embedded Websphsere Application server was selected during installation .

If you have forgot to select or chose not to install it , it can be done later too ( a post for another time )

Step 1 : Launch the TDS Web App
a) Ensure that the embedded websphere server “server1″ is Installed and started
Navigate to /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.3/appsrv/profiles/TDSWebAdminProfile/bin/
To start the webapp ./startServer.sh server1
To stop the webapp ./stopServer.sh server1

b) Once the server1 is started launch the browser
http://10.0.0.10:12100/IDSWebApp/
These are the default credentials for the IDSWebApp
username : superadmin
password : secret

InstallTDS33
c) We need to the add the new TDS instance in the WebApp for management
Click on “Manage Console Servers”

InstallTDS36

d) Click on “Add”


InstallTDS37

Update the hostname , IP address and the port no of the TDS ( We will get from the TDS Administration Tool)

InstallTDS38
InstallTDS39png
  e) Ensure that the TDS instance Server is started (  Steps  to start mentioned above )

InstallTDS30

f) Click Logout

g)  Access the url http://10.0.0.10:12100/IDSWebApp/ again now ,
We will see the Node which we have added

InstallTDS40
h) Enter the login credentials ie “cn=root” And Password ” passord “ which we have set above
InstallTDS41
i) From this web console we can manage the TDS instance
InstallTDS44

 

==================================
==================================
Adding Suffices to the TDS LDAP

Adding Suffices to the LDAP

a) Launch the TDS Configuration tool ( Ensure that you have X11 forwarding to enable the GUI Mode ”

[root@connections sbin]# cd /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.3/sbin/
[root@connections sbin]# ./idsxcfg

InstallTDS45
b) Click on Manage Suffixes

InstallTDS46

Enter dc=ibm,dc=com  ( you can provide your own suffices like dc=myorg,dc=com )
Click Add

InstallTDS47
c ) We need to create an  ldif files which contains the users and groups

Suffix : dc=ibm,dc=com
create a file createUser.ldif
[root@connections V6.3]# vi /opt/ibm/ldap/V8.3/createuser.ldif

you can refer to for sample from the links below

Sample ldif file — 1  for suffix dc=ibm,dc=com
or
Sample ldif file — 2  for suffix   dc=myorg,dc=com

d ) We need to import the ldif files

Click on “Import LDIF Data
Browse the createUser.ldif file
Click Import
If there is any errors in the ldif file it will only load the once which are proper . The duplicate once or the error once will not be loaded

InstallTDS48
It will require the TDS Instance to be stopped .

InstallTDS49

e ) Once the import is completed then start the TDS Instance server
Navigate to Manage server state >> Start Server

InstallTDS50
f ) Validate the imported users in the TDS using the TDS WebApp console
Login to the TDS WebApp console
To validate the import of the users

http://10.0.0.10:12100/IDSWebApp

InstallTDS41

Click on the “Mange entries”

We will see all the users which are loaded from the ldif file .

InstallTDS53

  g) Validating using ldap Browsers
You can use any other Directory browsers avaliable

1)  Extract the Ldap Browser Utility and Launch the lbe.jar

lbe
lbe1
2) Click on File >> New

lbe2

3) Enter a Session Name : I have entered it TDSLDAP

lbe3

4)  Go to connections tab
LdapBrowser1
1) Enter the IP Address, Port No and click Get suffix .
2) Select dc=ibm,dc=com
3) Uncheck Anonymous login
4) Enter username cn=root and password = password
5) Click Save

5)  We will see all the users which are populated in the console

LdapBrowser2

 

These are the highlevel steps to start and have a running Tivoli Directory Server LDAP 6.3 quickly.

You can customize and change the configs as per your requirement.
