The UseLdapConfig property determines whether TDGSS uses the property values in the base mechanism configuration or the values in the <LdapConfig> section. You can use the LdapConfig section to configure:

Default Property Value

The default value is no.

Valid Settings

Setting Description

yes TDGSS uses the configuration contained in the LdapConfig section

Editing Guidelines

  • The UseLdapConfig property appears by default in the TdgssLibraryConfigFile.xml. If you want to use the property you must copy the property into the TDGSS configuration file (TdgssUserConfigFile.xml) for each mechanism through which users may need to be authenticated or authorized by multiple directory services, and reset the value to yes.
  • You can configure this property on database nodes.
  • If you import the UseLdapConfig property into the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml and reset the value to yes, the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml must contain a valid <LdapConfig> section or logons fail. For configuration information, see Creating the <LdapConfig> Section in the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml.
