The setting of the LdapClientReferrals property determines whether TDGSS chases any referrals the directory presents. The directory makes referrals when the user DN that TDGSS sends to the directory is ambiguous, that is, when the DN 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.
For additional information on chasing referrals, see Optimizing Directory Searches.
|off (default)||TDGSS does not chase referrals|

- 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 and on the Unity server, if used. Also see Coordinating Mechanism Property Values for Unity.
- 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.
