Create a service object for each Teradata system for which the directory contains a security policy using native directory schema. Give the service permission to read the directory, so it can find applicable security policies. Do not allow the service to write to the directory.

dn: cn=teradata1,ou=services,dc=domain1,dc=com
objectClass: device
objectClass: simpleSecurityObject
cn: teradata1
userPassword: {SSHA}ReSK+0po4ZTwpi+OSTnKuBZF5+Vab1t7
This example shows an encrypted password, but the password can also appear in plaintext depending on your site security requirements, although plaintext is not recommended.
