Editing Guidelines

  • Edit this property on the database and on Unity, if used. Also see Coordinating Mechanism Property Values.
  • 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.
