Creating Realm in OpenAM and Configuring OpenDJ as a Data Store

I’ve tried my level best to keep this post as complete in itself as possible to be able to go through without having to read/watch any of my earlier posts/video logs. So while it is not strictly required to read/watch my earlier posts/video logs on this blog to go through this one, at least to understand the infrastructure used, it’s desired that you take a look at a couple of my earlier posts on OpenAM and OpenDJ at the links below:

Here’s what you can expect from the screen-cast below

– Creating new realm in OpenAM

– Configuring OpenDJ as a Data Store for the OpenAM realm

  • Hello,

    We have to create user data store with multiple OpenDJ servers in OpenAM 5.5 with the below format.

    Format: LDAP server host name:port | server_ID

    Can you please explain what is ‘Server_ID’ and from where we can get it.

    • The format is explained as
      “host:port to contact the directory server, with optional |server_ID|site_ID for deployments with multiple servers and sites.

      AM uses the optional settings to determine which directory server to contact first. AM tries to contact directory servers in the following priority order, with highest priority first:
      The first directory server in the list whose server_ID matches the current AM server.
      The first directory server in the list whose site_ID matches the current AM server.
      The first directory server in the remaining list.
      If the directory server is not available, AM proceeds to the next directory server in the list.”
      This is from the documentation here: https://backstage.forgerock.com/docs/am/5.5/maintenance-guide/#sec-data-stores-opendj

      You can find the Server ID details of OpenAM in the console (Deployment -> Servers)

      Apologies for the late response, I wasn’t monitoring comments on my blogs for some time.
