Oracle Internet Directory and Active Directory Interoperability

We have outlined step by step procedures for setting up the Directory Integration and Provisioning (DIP) component to synchronize LDAP user accounts from MS Active Directory to Oracle Internet Directory. DIP consists of a synchronization profile, which tells OID how to connect and synchronize with the third-party directory, and a server process which actually performs the integration. The lab walks through the following: • Configure a synchronization profile which points to our AD server by using the dipassistant utility • Activating the synchronization profile in OID • Starting an instance of odisrv, the directory integration and replication process, using the oidctl command-line utility.
