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 database, or TdgssUnityConfig.xml for Unity) for each mechanism through which users may need to be authenticated/authorized by multiple directory services, and reset the value to yes.
  • You can configure this property on database nodes and on Unity. Also see Coordinating Mechanism Property Values for Unity.
  • 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.
