The setting of the LdapClientReferrals property determines whether TDGSS chases any referrals the directory presents. The directory makes referrals when the user distinguished name that TDGSS sends to the directory is ambiguous, that is, when the distinguished name conforms to more than one directory naming context. When the value of LdapClientReferrals is set to on, TDGSS searches the directory for each naming context (referral) it receives.

The LdapClientReferrals property applies to any mechanism that searches for users in a directory.

Do not enable this property without first contacting Teradata Customer Service for assistance.

For additional information on chasing referrals, see Optimizing Directory Searches.

Editing Guidelines

  • To set a value, you must manually add this property to the TDGSS configuration file on the mechanisms that require it. See Editing Configuration Files.
  • Edit this property on database nodes.
  • The recommended setting is off.
  • If you use referral chasing, you should review the function of the LdapClientDeref property, which tells the directory how to process referrals, and configure it, if required.
