If the service defined by the LdapServiceFQDN property requires a password, you must either configure the LdapServicePassword property or provide an LDAP service password file. See LdapServicePasswordFile and LdapServiceFQDN.

The LdapServicePassword property is usable only for mechanisms that support service binds.

You can encrypt the LdapServicePassword using the LdapServicePasswordProtected property, as shown in LdapServicePasswordProtected.

Valid Settings

Setting Description
no (default) The system does not use service binds, or if it does use service binds, a password is not required.
A password The password for the service defined by the LdapServiceFQDN property.

The password for the service FQDN, if a password is required.

Editing Guidelines

  • To set a value, you must manually add this property to the TDGSS configuration file on needed mechanisms. See Editing Configuration Files.
  • Edit this property on the database and on Unity, if used. Also see Coordinating Mechanism Property Values for Unity.
  • If you do not specify a password, the system assumes that no password is required.
  • If you configure LdapServicePassword, you must also configure LdapServiceFQDN.
  • If you use this property to specify a service password, note that the password appears in the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml in plain text. To protect the LdapServicePassword, set the LdapServicePasswordProtected property to yes.
