Part 2: Installing your own Opalis Test Environment


The second part of installing your own Opalis Test Environment covers the installation of the Opalis Operator Console.  This is not the easiest part of setting up your Opalis environment, but with the steps below you must succeed. If you followed part 1 on the series you have already downloaded the software which is needed for the installation. Follow the steps below to install the Operator Console:

1. Unpack the Opalis Operator Console Installer Script file to a temp folder
2. Run the self-extracting file OpalisOperatorConsoleInstaller.exe from the temp folder
3. Click Yes Twice
4. Read the importent notes and click OK

6. Click Close
7. Now install the Java Development Kit 6 Update 4 by using the default settings

11. Now search for the Path System Variable and click Edit
12. At the end of the line add the following: ;%JAVA_HOME%bin
13. Now extract the JBoss Application Server ( to C:JBoss
14. Open a command prompt and run the following command in the folder where this file is: java -jar JAXWS2.1.2-20070917.jar
15. Read the License Agreement and click Accept
16. Check and make sure that the Jaxws-riLib folder was created
17. Copy the Operator Console folder from the Opalis Integration Server 6.22_6.2.2.5229 folder to you C: Drive
18. Open a Powershell console through, Start, All Programs, Accessoires, Windows Powershell and Click Windows Powershell
19. At the Windows PowerShell prompt, type set-executionpolicy RemoteSigned
20. Then Type in the following: C:OpConsoleInstallerinstallOpConsole.ps1. This starts the installation of the Operator Console
21. Press Enter and browse to your JBoss Installation folder from Step 13, Select the folder: jboss-4.2.3.GA, not the root folder
22. Press Enter and browse to your Operator Console folder from Step 17
23. Select No for the question of the Libraries Folder, then press Enter and select the right Libraries folder, which we created in part 1.
24. Then Select your Database type, in my case it’s the Default: Microsoft SQL Server. Press Enter or choose 2 for Oracle
25. Then Type in your Database server and click Enter
26. Then choose your type of SQL Authentication, Press Enter or choose 2 for SQL Authentication
27. Then type in your Databasename, if you decided not to change the default database name during the installation, press ENTER
28. Choose the default value for the JBoss bind, so press Enter
29. Then choose your type of User Authentication, in my case ‘Active Directory’. Type 2 and press ENTER
30. Then type for Active Directory root DN or choose the default and press ENTER
31. Select your Domaincontroller and press Enter
32. Type in your Active Directory port or press ENTER for the default
33. Then type in your Active Directory Opalis Admins group and click ENTER
34. The installation of the console is now complete, type exit to close Powershell
35. Then Open your the LIB folder of your JBoss Installation, in my case: C:JBossjboss-4.2.3.GAbin
36. Run the run.bat to start the JBoss Server
37. After some time the console window must say somethin like: Started in 35s:530ms
38. To start the Operator Console, Go to Start, All Programs, Opalis Software, Opalis Integration Server and Click Operator Console
39. Then try to Login with the user name which is a member of the Security Group you entered in Step 34
40. Congrats your logged in to your Opalis Operator Console!!

If you get the following error:”The username or password you have entered is not correct.” in Step 39. Check the console window and search for the LDAP Error. This was in my case:

21:11:33,866 ERROR [AccountServicesActiveDirectory] LDAP error javax.naming.AuthenticationException: [LDAP: error code 49 – 80090308: LdapErr: DSID-0C0903A9, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 52e, v1db0 ].

This is a typical AD Authentication Error.


I had to type in my domain before my username in the Username Login field. So MYDOMMYACCOUNT instead of MYACCOUNT. Hope this solves your authentication error also.


When you start the JBoss server with the run.bat. The console window must be open. If you close the console window the operator console will be stopped. In my next Blog I will explain how to run the JBoss server as a service…
