User contains sub-elements that define the user configured for the Directory Server instance. The sub-elements that qualify User include DirDN and DirPassword. It’s required XML attributes are the name of the user, and the type of user. The values for type identify the user’s privileges and the type of connection that will be opened to the Directory Serverinstance. Options include:
auth—defines a user authenticated to Directory Server.
proxy—defines a Directory Server proxy user. See Proxy User for more information.
rebind—defines a user with credentials that can be used to rebind.
admin—defines a user with Directory Server administrative privileges. See Admin User for more information.
DirDN contains the LDAP Distinguished Name of the defined user.
DirPassword contains the defined user’s encrypted password.
It is important that passwords and encryption keys are kept consistent throughout the deployment. For example, the passwords defined in this element are also stored in Directory Server. If the password is to be changed in one place, it must be updated in both places. Additionally, this password is encrypted. If the encryption key defined in the am.encryption.pwd property is changed, all passwords in serverconfig.xml must be re-encrypted using ampassword --encrypt password. .
