I was wondering if anyone has a sample connection string for SQLPlus using LDAP Authentication. I am also trying to specify in the connection string the database I wish to use.

Thanks, CDB

  • At the moment I am testing on HP-UX and RHEL. But any connection string will do – CDBrown Dec 6 '10 at 4:08

This Document is helpful http://webhelp.esri.com/geoportal_extension/9.3.1/geoportal931_installationguide.pdf (don't know your configuration setup).

Should be a simple SQL statement with the following parameters: (For Apache Web Server) Host – the machine name on which the LDAP server was installed.

Port– the port number on which the LDAP server is running. Apache Directory Server default is usually 10389 or 19389
protocol – select LDAP v3
DSML Service – leave blank
Base DN – leave blank
Level – select “User + Password”
User DN – the distinguished name (identifier) of the default admin user. Apache Server default is: uid=admin,ou=system
Password – the password to the LDAP server. Apache Server default is: secret

  • Thanks for that, but what I would actually like is rather than ArcGIS Server API using LDAP, I would like ArcGIS Desktop be able connect to an Oracle database using LDAP. All of the info I have found is using the OID (Oracle Insternet Service). I do not even know id the AGD option is possible. The question gets back to once the LDAP.ora is called there is no way to identify the database – CDBrown Dec 6 '10 at 23:20
