The Oracle Directory Services: Administration [] course begins with a brief overview of Oracle Identity Management solution. The next few sections teach students how to install, manage, interact with schema objects, configure security settings, and understand server chaining for Oracle Internet Directory.

Following this understanding the students delve into understanding of Oracle Directory Integration Platform and study three use cases in-depth on integrating Oracle Internet Directory with Oracle database table, Sun Java Directory Server and Microsoft Active Directory. The course also covers topics pertaining to understanding of Oracle Internet Directory replication concepts and setting of Oracle Advanced Symmetric Replication and LDAP (One-way, two-way) replication.

In the final section of this course, students dive into Oracle Virtual Directory. They learn the use cases in which Oracle Virtual Directory can be a better solution than data synchronization across heterogeneous directories. Students install and configure Oracle Virtual Directory Server and Oracle Virtual Directory Manager. The course also discusses in detail Database, LDAP, Join View, NT Domain and Local Store adapters. Some more advanced concepts pertaining to adapter routing and mapping plug-ins are also covered.
