You can use one or more of the following methods to check Teradata Vantage-related directory entries, either as a spot check upon completing directory setup, or later to investigate user problems.

Tool Usage
BTEQ or other Teradata Vantage client application Lets user log on through a Vantage client application, such as BTEQ, to verify that their user credentials are set up correctly in the directory.
tdgsstestcfg Allows the user to test the changes made to the user configuration file before making those changes active with run_tdgssconfig.

This tool launches a test environment in a new shell that contains the updates made to the configuration file. From the new shell, run the appropriate test tools as needed, such as tdgssauth.

ldapsearch Examines directory user attributes when investigating the source of user problems.
