Prepare a Tivoli Directory Server

  1. Install Tivoli Directory Server

    Due to a restriction in Tivoli Directory Server, users or groups must not contain a Turkish uppercase dotted I or lowercase dotted i in the DN as this will prevent correct retrieval of that user or group.

  2. Create the WebSphere Portal administrative user

    1. Create a new directory suffix (Optional):

      1. Click the Server Administration folder, located in the left-hand navigation of the directory server console.

      2. Click the Manage Server Properties folder under the Server Administration folder and then select Suffixes on the main page.

      3. Type the Base DN name for the suffix; for example: dc=yourcompany,dc=com.

      4. Click Add.

      5. Click OK to save your changes.

      6. Cycle the LDAP server.

    2. Edit SETUP_CDROM/filename.ldif

      • Use PortalUsers.ldif for most scenarios.

      • Use the ContentUsers.ldif file for the IBM DB2 Content Manager group and user IDs if you configured DB2 Content Manager.

    3. Replace every dc=yourco,dc=com with your suffix.

    4. Replace any prefixes and suffixes unique to your LDAP server.

    5. You can specify user names other than wpsadmin and wpsbind.

      For security reasons, specify nontrivial passwords for these administrator accounts.

    6. Optional: If using IBM Tivoli Access Manager Version 5.1, set the objectclasses to accessGroup.

      If using Tivoli Access Manager Version 6, set the objectclasses to groupOfNames.

    7. Save changes.

    8. Import the LDIF file into the directory server

    9. Cycle the LDAP server.
