Create an SSL directory structure on each Teradata Database node, and on the Unity server, if used. For the database, the structure must be identically named on all nodes.

Teradata suggests using the TDGSS site directory.

The resulting SSL structure consists of two directories:

  • site/ssl/cacerts
  • site/ssl/certs

    These locations correspond to the values required for the following SSL/TLS LDAP mechanism properties, which must search the directories to find needed certificate and key information:

  • For LdapClientTlsCACertDir: site/ssl/cacerts
  • For LdapClientTlsCert and LdapClientTlsKey: site/ssl/certs
