When the LdapClientReferrals property is set to chase referrals, LDAP establishes a new connection to the directory server and continues the searches on that connection, based on the referral. The LdapClientRebindAuth property tells the authentication mechanism how to bind to the new (referred) connection.

Valid Settings

Setting Description
yes (default) The authentication mechanism uses the user credential info to authenticate the new search connection before searching.
no The authentication mechanism does not authenticate the new search connection with user credential info, but instead uses an anonymous connection to do the search.

Editing Guidelines

  • The LdapClientRebindAuth appears by default in the library configuration file, for the LDAP mechanism only.
  • To set a value, you must manually add this property to the TDGSS configuration file for each mechanism that uses it. See About Editing Configuration Files.
  • Edit this property on database nodes and on the Unity server, if used. Also see Coordinating Mechanism Property Values for Unity.
  • Edit this property to specify the how TDGSS should handle referrals, when the LdapClientReferrals property is set to yes.
