Use tdgssauth to establish and test a connection between Vantage and the directory. For information on using tdgssauth, see Working with tdgssauth.

  • If the tdgssauth test succeeds, go to Configuring TDGSS to Use Advanced Binding Options and configure the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml on Teradata Vantage. Then restart Vantage to enable the configuration change.
  • If tdgssauth fails and does not provide a clear indication of the failure, you can add the -V 2 option to request that tdgssauth provide additional hexadecimal dumps, which contain hints about the cause of failure. The Troubleshooting TLS Setup with a Directory Server topic describes the most common errors and solutions for them.
Certificates usually have expiration dates. If a certificate in the chain expires, the connection to the directory ceases to function until you install a new set of certificates in the CA certificate directory.
