In addition to tdgssauth and ldapsearch, TDGSS includes several other commonly available directory tools, customized by Teradata to help you administer directories that interface with Teradata Vantage. Even though these tools are OpenLdap-compliant, they may differ slightly from tools with similar names supplied with your LDAP-compliant directory.

LDAP Tool Description
ldapcompare Compares directory objects to a search filter and returns a true/false assessment of whether the object satisfies the filter criteria.
ldapdelete Removes objects from the directory.
ldapmodify Adds new objects and modifies existing objects in the directory.
ldapmodrdn Renames objects in the directory.
ldappasswd Changes directory passwords.
This tool works only with directories that support the PASSWORD-MODIFY extended operation. All supporting directories contain for the value in the RootDSE supportedExtension attribute.
ldapsearch Finds objects in the directory.
ldapwhoami Binds to the directory and discovers a user directory identity.

All supporting directories contain for the value of the RootDSE supportedExtension attribute.

You can find the LDAP tools in the TDGSS bin directory (/opt/teradata/tdgss/bin).

Because the LDAP tools are industry standards, this document provides minimal guidance on how to use them. For additional usage information, go to the OpenLdap website at: http://www.openldap.org.
