Description:

How to configure a user directory connection that lets the Policy Server communicate with a CA Directory user store?

Solution:

This has been described in the r12 SP1 Policy Server Configuration guide in Chapter 7: "User Directories", section "How to Configure a CA Directory User Directory Connection".

However, there are some typos under section "To enable user store DSA parameters".

As per the document:

  1. Open the .dxc file for the user store DSA.

  2. Define the following at the bottom of the file:
    #SiteMinder
    mimic-netscape-for-siteminder = true;
    concurrent-bind-user = true;
    hold-ldap-connections = true;

  3. Save and close the .dxc file.
    The user store DSA parameters are enabled."

It should be:

"To enable user store DSA parameters

  1. Open the .dxc file for the user store DSA.

  2. Define the following at the bottom of the file:
    #SiteMinder
    set mimic-netscape-for-siteminder = true;
    set concurrent-bind-user = <DN>;
    set hold-ldap-connections = true;

  3. Save and close the .dxc file.

Note: (DN is in x500 format. For example "<o acme><cn smadmin>")

The user store DSA parameters are enabled.
