WARNING! Most LDAP servers have an ldapadd utility for adding directory entries. Sybase recommends that you use dsedit of dscp instead since they have built-in semantic checks that generic tools do not provide.
Each server entry is made up of a set of attributes. When you add or modify a server entry, you are prompted for information about server attributes. Some attributes are provided by default, others require user input. When a default value is provided, it appears in brackets “[ ]”. See Table 5-2 for accepted values.
You can use srvbuild to add entries, but not modify or delete them.
Adding a server entry to the directory service using dsedit
Before you can add, delete, or modify an LDAP server entry, you must add the LDAP URL to the libtcl*.cfg file. See “The libtcl.cfg and libtcl64.cfg files”.
Use dsedit to add a server to the directory service:
From the Windows task bar, select Start | Programs | Sybase | dsedit.
Select LDAP from the list of servers, and click OK.
Click Add New Server Entry.
The server name – this is required.
Security mechanism – optional. A list of security mechanism OIDs are located in %SYBASE%\%SYBASE_OCS%\ini\objectid.dat.
HA server name – optional. This is the name of the high-availability failover server, if you have one.
Click Add New Network Transport.
Select the transport type from the drop-down list.
Enter the host name.
Enter the port number.
Click OK two times to exit the dsedit utility.
To view the server entries, enter the following URL in Netscape:
Microsoft Internet Explorer does not recognize LDAP URLs.
