Installing and Configuring VMware Identity Manager provides information about the installation and configuration process for the VMware Identity Manager appliance. When the installation is finished, you can use the administration console to entitle users to managed multi-device access to your organization's applications, including Windows applications, software as a service (SaaS) applications, and View desktops. The guide also explains how to configure your deployment for high availability.

This information is intended for administrators of VMware Identity Manager. The information is written for experienced Windows and Linux system administrators who are familiar with VMware technologies, particularly vCenter™, ESX™, vSphere®, and View™, networking concepts, Active Directory servers, databases, backup and restore procedures, Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), and NTP servers. SUSE Linux 11 is the underlying operating system for the virtual appliance. Knowledge of other technologies, such as VMware ThinApp® and RSA SecurID is helpful if you plan to implement those features.
