LDAP_HOST Statement

LDAP_HOST Statement

The LDAP_HOST statement defines TCP/IP host details for an LDAP server that PowerExchange might use for user validation. To configure LDAP for failover, define multiple LDAP_HOST statements.
If you specify LDAP as the third parameter of the SECURITY statement, include at least one LDAP_HOST statement in the DBMOVER configuration file. You can include up to 32 LDAP_HOST statements. If you include multiple LDAP_HOST statements, PowerExchange uses the first available LDAP server, based on the order in which the LDAP_HOST statements occur in the DBMOVER configuration file.
Linux, UNIX, and Windows
LDAP_PORT
No
LDAP_HOST=
hostname
[,
port
]
host_name
Required. TCP/IP host name or IP address of an LDAP server that is listening on the port specified in the
port
parameter or LDAP_PORT statement.
port
Optional. TCP/IP port on which the LDAP server that is specified in the
host_name
parameter is listening. Valid values are from 1 through 65535. If you do not specify the
port
value, PowerExchange uses the value specified in the LDAP_PORT statement. If you do not specify the LDAP_PORT statement either, PowerExchange uses the default of 389.
  • If you specify multiple LDAP_HOST statements, PowerExchange checks for the first available LDAP server each time a PowerExchange user requires LDAP authentication. If a failed LDAP server becomes available later, it will be included in the checking again automatically.
  • Order LDAP_HOST statements in the DBMOVER configuration file to reflect how you prioritize your LDAP servers for PowerExchange authentication use.
