Key Directories Used by the LCM Tools

Directory Purpose When Created Where to Specify During Install and Deployment
REPOS_HOME Contains the required Java Development Kit (JDK) and all the product installers required to install and configure Oracle Identity and Access Management. This directory is created when you unpack the Repository archives from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN). Enter the value of the REPOS_HOME in the Software Repository Location field of the Deployment Wizard when you are creating a response file.
IDMLCM_HOME Oracle home for the LCM Tools. From this directory structure, you run the LCM Deployment Wizard. This directory is created by the LCM Tools installer. Enter in the Oracle Home Directory field in the IDM LCM Tools Installer.
IDMTOP Top-level directory for the Oracle Identity and Access Management environment. It consists of:

  • IDMTOP/products, which contains the software binaries

  • IDMTOP/config, which contains the domains, instances, and other runtime artifacts

The IDMTOP directory, as well as its subdirectories, are created by the LCM Tools during the deployment of the Oracle Identity and Access Management software. In the Deployment Wizard, when creating the response file:

  • Enter the location of IDMTOP in the Software Installation Location field.
  • Enter the location of the config directory in the Shared Configuration Location field.

Note: The configuration location is set to a location inside the IDMTOP directory by default; however, you can have the Deployment Wizard create the directory in any accessible location.

The products directory will be created inside the IDMTOP directory when you deploy the software.

LCM_STORE Contains the logs, topology.xml, and other software artifacts required by the LCM tools. The LCM_STORE directory is created by the LCM Tools during deployment of the Oracle Identity and Access Management software. Enter the value of the LCM_STORE variable in the Life Cycle Management Store Location field.
