CA Single Sign-On

When using a properties file (default = ca-ps-installer.properties), the parameters to configure the registry entries for the policy store are in the file...

DEFAULT_POLICYSTORE_TYPE=

LDAP DEFAULT_POLICYSTORE_IP=

DEFAULT_POLICYSTORE_PORT=

DEFAULT_POLICYSTORE_ADMINDN=

etc.

Our site runs a separate LDAP instance for the key store. There is currently no way to automatically configure the key store during a silent/unattended install.  In order to configure the key store, after an unattended installation, requires writing a script to update the registry, manually editing the registry, or using smconsole to configure the key store.  If you are at a site with only a couple of policy servers, that ain't no big thing.  If you are on a site where there are dozens of policy servers, it is time consuming and possibly error inducing to manually configure the key store entries.

Improve the CA Single Sign-On installer so that the key store can be configured via attribute/value pairs in the installer.properties file.
