1. Install Ant on RHEL

Before you do anything, you need to install the ant tool. To do this, you can run the following command

sudo yum install ant


2. Edit your ant.properties file

Navigate to your ant.properties file, which is typically located within your OIM_HOME/server/plugin_utility. Once you've located the ant.properties file, jump into it for some editing.

Within the file, enter all the variables with their full path path. The variables you need to enter are the wls.home, oim.home, login.config, mw.home, and the ANT_HOME variable. You can also see within the screenshot that I have REM'd out the original variables.

Save and exit the file


3. Edit the pluginregistration.xml file

The other file I noticed that was giving me troubles was pluginregistration.xml file. This is located within the same directory. The two variables that you should alter is the ext.dir and platform.dir. These are the only two variables that you need to alter within this file because the other variables derive from these two

Save and exit the file


4. Set the Environment Variables

It's also best to add the ant_home variable within your .bash_profile file. remember to export out the variable also. Confirm that you have set the ANT command correctly by running the following:

echo $ANT_HOME

Once you've done these 3 steps, you're now ready to go!
