Access Management Alternatives (Part II): OpenDJ for LDAP, EUS and TNSNames

Directory Service: OpenDJ Installation has been described in a previous part. The question now is to make OpenDJ Oracle compatible, so that it can be used with EUS and TNS names resolution. In fact, I want to be able to install and use TNS Name resolution and Enterprise User Security (EUS) as done before. Clues One clue was already mentioned, the appearance of $ORACLE_HOME/config/EUS/

Also, it seems as-if you cannot login to OAM management console anymore; your credentials are accepted, but you get

Access Management alternatives (Part 1: Directory Services)

A colleague suggested OpenIAM, which -at closer look- turns out to be a fork of what I believe to be the origin of the Oracle stack, Sun's OpenSSO. So, I started at looking at this stack, which is available from ForgeRock. Let's start with the basis:
