You can configure the following properties for any Service element (directory) that contains a security policy structure. When adding policy elements to services previously configured for LDAP authentication, you may find that some of these properties are already configured. For information on configuring Service elements for LDAP, see Configuring LDAP to Use Multiple Directory Services.

Property Name Description
LdapServerName [Required] Identifies the directory that contains the policy being configured.

Must be a valid URI or DNS SRV RR specification. For details, see LdapServerName.

LdapServiceFQDN [Required unless the service is anonymously readable] Identifies the bindable object in the directory that represents the service identity, that is, the Teradata Vantage system that contains the TDGSS configuration file that is being configured.
Directories that serve multiple Vantage systems should contain a separate bindable object for each system.
LdapServicePassword Configures a password as the value of this property if your site security policy requires a password for the service FQDN.
LdapServicePasswordProtected Indicates whether the LDAP service password (if used) is encrypted.
  • Yes means that TDGSS stores the LdapServicePassword in encrypted form.
  • No (the default) means that TDGSS stores the LdapServicePassword in plain text.
LdapSystemFQDN Identifies the FQDN of the tdatSystem directory object, to assist in constructing the DNs of Vantage users and profiles.

For additional information on configuring LDAP properties, see TDGSS Configuration Files, Valid Settings, and Editing Guidelines.
