I discussed about availability of IAM 11gR2 PS2 (, installation changes in here and lessons learned to upgrade to 11gR2 PS2 here .

I also discussed new feature OAM High Availability across Data Centres introduced in 11gR2 PS2 ( OAMConsole (Admin Console to configure & manage OAM) has changed in OAM 11GR2 PS2 (, more information here

In this post I am going to show how to enable below services in Access Management Suite.

a) Identity Federation
b) Security Token Service
c) Mobile and Social
d) Access Portal Service

Note: These services are disabled by default and you must enable them before using (More on integrating OAM with Google as Identity Provider later)
