ProcedureTo specify LDAP databases in the user interface

Once you have defined one or more user authentication databases in the dbswitch.conf file, you can use the Class Manager to configure the databases for each of your virtual servers to use for authentication. You can also use the Class Manager to add a new database definition from the dbswitch.conf for the virtual server to authenticate against.

To specify which LDAP database or databases a virtual server should use, perform the following steps:

  1. Access the Server Manager and select the Virtual Server Class tab.

  2. Click the virtual server class link where you wish to specify the LDAP database listed under Tree View of the Server.

  3. Select the Virtual Server tab, if not already selected.

  4. Click the ACL Settings link.

    The ACL Settings for Virtual Servers page is displayed.

  5. Choose Edit from the drop-down list in the Option column, if not already displayed.

  6. Select a database configuration from the drop-down list in the Database column for the virtual server you are editing.

  7. Click OK.

  8. Close the Edit ACL Files window.

  9. Click Apply.

  10. Choose Dynamically Apply.
