You administer PowerCenter for an organization that has a centralized LDAP NIS for user authentication. When you upgrade PowerCenter, you decide to use the LDAP for user authentication. The upgrade installs the LDAP security module in the repository security folder. After connecting to the repository with the Connect command, the administrator runs the pmrep command to register the new external module with the repository:
pmrep registerplugin -i security/ldap_authen.xml -l adminuser -w admnpass
The -l login name and -w login password options contain the valid NIS login information for the user running the pmrep command. After registration, you must use this login name and password to access the repository.
The login name and password must be valid in the external directory, or the administrator cannot access the repository using LDAP.
The -i option contains the XML file name that describes the security module.
