LDAP_BASE Statement

LDAP_BASE Statement

The LDAP_BASE statement specifies the location within an LDAP directory from which to conduct a PowerExchange user search. If you specify LDAP as the third parameter in the SECURITY statement, include at least one LDAP_BASE statement in the DBMOVER configuration file. You can specify up to five LDAP_BASE statements.
LDAP searches the search-base locations in the order in which LDAP_BASE statements occur in the DBMOVER configuration file. The search stops as soon as the PowerExchange user is found, or the search continues through all LDAP_BASE locations if no PowerExchange user is found.
Linux, UNIX, and Windows
For the
variable, enter the distinguished name (DN) of an LDAP tree node from which to conduct a PowerExchange user search. Enclose the
value in parentheses and double quotation marks.
  • If you do not define an LDAP_BASE statement, PowerExchange uses the default search base, which is an empty string. This search base will likely cause all searches to fail.
  • If you use multiple LDAP_BASE statements, for best search performance, order the statements so that a PowerExchange user is likely to be found as soon as possible.
