  1. Make a backup copy of the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file.
  2. Revise TdgssUserConfigFile.xml to include the elements and properties required to support authentication using multiple directory services. See Adding Multiple Directory Services to the TDGSS Configuration.
  3. Verify the configuration is correct:
    1. Run tdgsstestcfg to test the configuration. It launches a test environment in a new shell that contains the updates to the configuration file.
    2. Run the tdgssauth utility to test the new configuration before you commit the changes to the TDGSSCONFIG GDO.

      See Working with tdgssauth.

    3. Exit the test shell:
    4. Continue editing and testing until the configuration is correct.
  4. Run the run_tdgssconfig utility to update the TDGSSCONFIG GDO.
  5. If run_tdgssconfig indicates that a TPA reset is required, run tpareset.
    tpareset “use updated TDGSSCONFIG GDO”
  6. If users log on through Unity, duplicate the configuration on the Unity server and all connected database systems. See Using <LdapConfig> with Unity.
