Configuring the Proxy Manager

The Proxy Manager is the privileged administrator, comparable to the root user on UNIX systems. The Proxy Manager entry is defined when an instance of Directory Proxy Server is created. The default DN of the Proxy Manager is cn=Proxy Manager.

You can view and change the Proxy Manager DN and password, as shown in the following procedure.

ProcedureTo Configure the Proxy Manager

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

  1. Find the configuration of the Proxy Manager.

    $ dpconf get-server-prop -h host -p port configuration-manager-bind-dn\
    configuration-manager-bind-dn   :  cn=proxy manager
    configuration-manager-bind-pwd  :  {3DES}U77v39WX8MDpcWVrueetB0lfJlBc6/5n

    The default value for the Proxy Manager is cn=proxy manager. A hashed value is returned for the configuration manager password.

  2. Change the DN of the Proxy Manager.

    $ dpconf set-server-prop -h host -p port configuration-manager-bind-dn:bindDN
  3. Create a file that contains the password for the Proxy Manager and set the property that points to that file.

    $ dpconf set-server-prop -h host -p port configuration-manager-bind-pwd-file:filename
