    difference between active directory implementation and oracle internet directory in obiee 11g

      Hello Gurus,


      Recently in my organization there is replacement of AD is started with OID.


      I know that in the mechanism of external database authentication , we have tables which are called at rpd and we do authentication , this was in OBIEE 10g.


      Second type of authorization method we followed which is LDAP , it could be any type of LDAP where all the groups and users are stored in LDAP manually.


      My question are as per below ----


      How OID is different from LDAP and whose performance is better for long term ?

      Why we have to go for OID instead of LDAP ?

      What MOD_WL_OHS configuration file contains ?

      What is the roles of Oracle Access manager in OID ?

      what is Oracle HTTP Server 11g Webgate ?

      Why OAM Identity Asserter is important for both AD and OID , what exactly it does ?

      Do I have to enable SSO mandatorily for OID ?

      What is HWLB URL , what is its function ?
