Some useful shell scripts for setting up Oracle Linux

Do you frequently need to setup new instances of Oracle Linux to host the database, Weblogic, and  IAM Middleware?

I nabbed some great scripts from my colleagues Chris Johnson (of Fusion Security fame) and Art Mattson. I threw in a couple of my own scripts (great artists steal, right?), and have assembled these as a github project.

If you are setting up a new system grab the scripts with:

wget https://github.com/wstrange/Oracle-IAM-Scripts/zipball/master
Standard disclaimer: These scripts come with no warranty. Use at your own risk!

If you have some useful scripts that you would like to contribute drop me a line.

Integrating Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) with Service-Now

Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) provides SAML and OpenId federation services. OIF helps organizations to leverage SAAS  as part of their IT strategy by providing identity federation.

As part of  a recent POC we completed an OIF integration with Service-Now,  a cloud base IT Service management platform.

John Andersen is a rock star consultant from Service-Now who worked with me on the integration. We have documented the procedure and included a few screen shots (see link below).  Your environment will be a little different - but this recipe should get you going. Comments or corrections  are welcome!
