IssueInstructions for installing Adaptive Authentication on a BEA WebLogic 8.x environment
CauseIncomplete documentation
ResolutionUse the following steps to install Adaptive Authentication On Premise application on a BEA WebLogic 8.x running environment on Linux:

1. Install a WebLogic 8.x system, create a domain and server for pmws_server

2. Manually unzip the pmws_server.war file and deploy it in the WebLogic applications directory. WebLogic can run an application directly from a packed .war file, but pmws_server fails to operate in that configuration as distributed.

3. Manually unzip "geoip files.zip" and edit config-forensic.xml (in the unpacked pmws_server tree) to point to the location of the unzipped files

4. Using the WebLogic console, create a data source and pool specifying the Oracle 9i thin client driver (driver name "oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver"). WebLogic offers a variety of different Oracle drivers - pmws_server requires this one. Use the JNDI name "jdbc/PassMarkDB".

5. Install a fix for XFire on WebLogic version 8.1 (file qname.jar) available at http://docs.codehaus.org/display/XFIRE/XFire+on+Weblogic+8.1

6. Install the Oracle database and images - RSA's documentation does not give a correct example specifying the location of the IMAGES directory extracted from pmimages.tar. The documentation also fails to indicate that the default execution PATH must include a java processor (a java program inserts the images into the database) and that an administrator must "chmod +x" the scripts "orame" and "orame2".

NOTE: There are no instructions for installing into a WebLogic 8.x environment.
