Update the federated LDAP user registry on AIX

You can update the default federated repository to change...

The task wp-update-federated-ldap does not modify...

See the separate tasks for updating these parameters.

In a single server environment the WebSphere_Portal and server1 servers can be either stopped or started.

In a clustered environment stop all appservers on the system including WebSphere_Portal and server1 and then start the nodeagent and deployment manager servers before starting the following task.

To ensure correct properties, use the helper file...

  1. Edit...


  2. Enter the following parameters under the Federated LDAP repository heading ...

  3. Update the following parameters in wkplc.properties under the Federated LDAP repository heading:

  4. Save changes to wkplc.properties.

  5. Validate the LDAP server settings...

      ./ConfigEngine.sh validate-federated-ldap -DWasPassword=password

    Note that if you have not deleted the default file repository, WasPassword is the value entered during installation and not a value found in your LDAP user registry.

  6. Run...

    from the profile_root/ConfigEngine directory, to update the LDAP user registry in the default federated repository.

  7. Propagate the security changes:

    Option Description
    Standalone cd profile_root/bin
    ./stopServer.sh server1 -username admin_userid -password admin_password
    ./stopServer.sh WebSphere_Portal -username admin_userid -password admin_password
    ./startServer.sh server1
    ./startServer.sh WebSphere_Portal
    Cluster cd dmgr_profile/bin
    ./stopManager.sh-username admin_userid -password admin_password
    cd profile_root/bin
    ./stopNode.sh -username admin_userid -password admin_password
    ./stopServer.sh WebSphere_Portal -username admin_userid -password admin_password
    cd dmgr_profile/bin
    cd profile_root/bin
    ./startServer.sh WebSphere_Portal

If you performed these steps after creating the clustered environment, run enable-jcr-security on the secondary node.
