This property appears only in the library configuration file. You must manually add it to the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml before you can configure it. See About Editing Configuration Files.

Editing Guidelines

  • You must set a value for this property if the directory is Active Directory, ADAM, AD LDS or any uncertified LDAPv3-compliant directory. See About Certified Directories
  • The value of the LdapUserBaseFQDN property often corresponds to the value of the identity search or identity map Base attribute, but the Base attribute is not a substitute for the LdapUserBaseFQDN. If you configure an identity search and the search fails, LDAP uses the value of the LdapUserBaseFQDN property. See Optimizing Directory Searches.
  • Edit this property on database nodes and on the Unity server, if used. Also see Coordinating Mechanism Property Values.
