You can use the ldapsearch tool to find and display the contents of the RootDSE object from an Active Directory, ADAM, or AD LDS directory server.

For descriptions of the options used in this search, see ldapsearch.

The phrase ...snipped... indicates output sections that the example does not show, because they do not apply to the directory interface with Teradata Vantage.

$
If the directory does not allow an anonymous read, a valid user identity and password must be presented and the database will require a service ID and password in order to use this directory service.
The output of the example ldapsearch command shows the contents of the RootDSE object, including the following critical attributes:
  • The supportedLDAPVersion attribute is set to 3. This value indicates that the directory is compliant with LDAPv3, the only LDAP version that Teradata Vantage supports.
  • The dnsHostName attribute contains the fully qualified DNS name for the directory server. All nodes of the Teradata Vantage server must resolve the host name of the directory through the system name resolution/lookup service in a way that exactly matches the data in this attribute.
