Fusion Applications bare metal provisioning series Part III: Provisioning Identity and Access Management

This is my favourite part of the process, because from hardest one it has now became the easiest. While it was a huge struggle and the most important stage of Fusion Applications provisioning in earlier versions, with release of 11.1.7 Oracle developers did a great job to automate the whole burden of Identity and Access management components manual setup. Frankly speaking it was very easy to misinterpret some parts of documentation when doing it all manually and therefore make a mistake in crucial setup parts which then lead to unexpected errors during Fusion Apps provisioning. Now it all gone! As a result you get a fully working and integrated Identity and Access Management environment which is ready for Fusion Applications. Continue reading

Fusion Applications bare metal provisioning series Part II: Preparing servers and databases for Identity Management

As it was mentioned in my previous post, Identity and Access Management is the main prerequisite of Fusion Applications provisioning – therefore it is the first thing to start with in overall process.

However, my recommendation is to split components between four servers in order to gain more performance and manageability. The easiest way of course is to leverage virtualisation for that purpose, but please be ready for large amounts of RAM and disk space. Here is what official documentation states for typical HW requirements (or minimum, meant not for a production case):
