After you complete the editing of the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml to include the <LdapConfig> section, you should test the configuration before committing the configuration on the Teradata Database system or Unity server.

  1. On the Teradata Database system (or Unity server), run the run_tdgssconfig utility to update the TDGSSCONFIG GDO with the new version of the <LdapConfig>.
  2. Use the tdgssauth utility to test the new <LdapConfig> to verify that users from each service can be authenticated.
    1. Specify a directory user and the necessary options using tdgssauth -u dir_user .

      See Working with tdgssauth.

    2. Check the output.
    3. If the authentication fails, make the necessary configuration changes and rerun steps 1 through 3 until the authentication succeeds.
  3. Run tpareset to activate the changes in the TDGSS configuration.
    tpareset -f "use updated TDGSSCONFIG GDO"
