AIX stand-alone: Prepare a Tivoli Directory Server

To use a Tivoli Directory Server as an LDAP user registry, install and set up the server so that it communicates with IBM WebSphere Portal.

  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 on that user or group.

  2. Use the Tivoli Directory Server Web Administration Tool to create the WebSphere Portal administrative user:

    1. To create a new directory suffix:

        Server Administration folder | Manage Server Properties folder | Suffixes

      ...and set the Base DN name for the suffix; for example...


    2. Edit PORTAL_HOME/installer/wp.iim/ldif:

        PortalUsers.ldif file Working example. Adopt to work with the LDAP server.
        ContentUsers.ldif For the IBM Content Manager group and user IDs if you configured IBM Content Manager.

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

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

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

    6. Save the changes.

    7. Import the LDIF file.
