Oracle Fusion Middleware Administration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition

ProcedureTo Create an LDAP Data Source

You can use DSCC to perform this task. For information, see Directory Service Control Center Interface and the DSCC online help.

  1. Create the data source.

    $ dpconf create-ldap-data-source -h host -p port [-s] source-name host:port

    In this command, source-name is a name that you assign to the new data source. host and port refer to the host and port on which the LDAP server is running. Note that the data source does not use SSL by default. Use -s to enable to specify a secure port.

    If the host is specified by an IP V6 address, you need to use the IP V6 reference when you create the data source. For example, if Directory Proxy Server will bind to a host with the IP V6 address fe80::209:3dff:fe00:8c93 on port 2389, use the following command to create the data source:

    $ dpconf create-ldap-data-source -h host1 -p 1389 ipv6-host \

    If you use the console to create the data source, you must specify the actual IP V6 address (without the square brackets).

    For information about how to modify the properties of an LDAP data source, see To Configure an LDAP Data Source.

  2. (Optional) View the list of data sources.

    $ dpconf list-ldap-data-sources -h host -p port
