Overview #When using the DirXML Remote Loader and the DirXML Driver a server with the Remote Loader. The DirXML Remote Loader Identity Vault and the Metadirectory engine installed on the same server the Connected Application.
When using a DirXML Remote Loader, the DirXML Remote Loader DirXML Shim is loaded on the DirXML Engine which communicates to the DirXML Remote Loader which has the DirXML Driver for the Connected Application.
Some DirXML Remote Loader Scenarios #The DirXML Remote Loader enables the DirXML Engine to exchange data with the Identity Vault as different processes and in different locations, including the following scenarios. Lotus Notes on AIX and your DirXML Engine is on Linux. As the Lotus Notes Client requires a DLL to be used with the driver, it is possible to install a Windows Server to host the DirXML Remote Loader and the Lotus Notes client DLL.
Separate Process #As a separate process where the DirXML Remote Loader is on the same server where the DirXML Engine is running:
- The DirXML Engine runs as part of an EDirectory process.
- The Identity Manager drivers can run on the server where the DirXML Engine is running.
However, for strategic reasons and to simplifying troubleshooting, you might want the Identity Manager driver to run as a separate process on the server. This is done by installing the DirXML Remote Loader on the same server as the DirXML Engine.
Connected Application Servers #On the Connected Application server that is not running the DirXML Engine.
Some of the DirXML Drivers are unable to run where the DirXML Engine is running. The DirXML Remote Loader enables you to run the DirXML Engine in one environment while running an DirXML Drivers on a server in a different environment or on a different Operating System.
For example, you cannot run the Microsoft Active Directory Driver on a Linux server. The DirXML Engine can run on the Linux Server while the DirXML Remote Loader runs on an Microsoft Active Directory server.Best Practices Remote Loader describes why you should always us DirXML Remote Loader DirXML Drivers That Support Using DirXML Remote Loader]
