Modifying an existing Red Hat Directory Server connection
You can modify the various settings for an existing Red Hat Directory Server connection, such as server name, communication port, access credentials, and the attributes used for naming objects in Red Hat Directory Server.
Every object in Red Hat Directory Server has a naming attribute from which the object name is formed. When you create a connection to Red Hat Directory Server, a default naming attribute is selected for each object type in the data system. You can view the default naming attribute currently selected for each object type in the data system and optionally specify a different naming attribute.
To modify connection settings
- In the Quick Connect Administration Console, open the Connections tab.
- Click Connection settings below the existing Red Hat Directory Server connection you want to modify.
- On the Connection Settings tab, click an appropriate item to expand it and use the options it provides.
You can expand the following items:
See the next subsections for the descriptions of these items.
- When you are finished, click Save.
Specify connection settings
This expandable item provides the following options that allow you to modify the connection settings:
- Server. Type the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the computer running Red Hat Directory Server to which you want to connect.
- Port. Type the number of the communication port used by the Red Hat Directory Server computer to which you want to connect.
- Access Red Hat Directory Server using. Type the user name and password of the account with which you want to access Red Hat Directory Server. Ensure the account has sufficient permissions to perform the operations you want (Read, Write) on objects in Red Hat Directory Server.
- Advanced. Click this button to specify a number of advanced options to access Red Hat Directory Server. For example, you can select an authentication method to access the server, configure TLS/SSL usage for the connection, and select whether or not you want to use paged search.
From the Authentication method list, select one of the following methods:
- Anonymous. Allows you to establish the connection without passing credentials.
- Basic. Specifies to use basic authentication.
- Microsoft Negotiate. Specifies to use Microsoft Negotiate authentication.
- NTLM. Specifies to use Windows NT Challenge/Response authentication.
- Digest. Specifies to use Digest Access authentication.
- Sicily. Employs a negotiation mechanism (Sicily) to choose the Microsoft Network Authentication Service, Distributed Password Authentication, or NTLM method.
- Distributed Password Authentication. Specifies to use DPA authentication.
- Microsoft Network Authentication Service. Specifies to authenticate with Microsoft Network Authentication Service.
- External. Specifies to use an external authentication method for the connection.
- Kerberos. Specifies to use Kerberos authentication.
You can also use the following check boxes:
- Use TLS/SSL. Allows you to use the TLS (SSL) encryption to establish and maintain the connection.
- Switch to TLS/SSL after establishing connection. Establishes the connection without using the TLS (SSL) encryption. Then, after the connection has been established, enables the TLS (SSL) encryption.
- Verify TLS/SSL certificate. Specifies whether or not to check the TLS (SSL) certificate on the server.
- Use paged search. Specifies whether or not to use paged search for the connection. When selecting this check box, you can set a page size limit in the text box below.
- Test Connection. Click this button to verify the specified connection settings.
Specify naming attributes
Allows you to specify a naming attribute for each object type in the connected data system. You can use the following options:
- Default naming attribute. Displays the default naming attribute set for the currently selected object type.
- Add. Adds a new naming attribute for the selected object type.
- Edit. Allows you to edit the name of the naming attribute currently specified for the selected object type.
- Remove. Removes the currently selected entry from the list.
Working with MySQL database
Working with MySQL database
This section explains how to create or modify a connection to a MySQL database so that One Identity Quick Connect for Base Systems could work with data in that database.
To create a connection to a MySQL database, you need to use One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine in conjunction with a special connector called MySQL Connector. This connector is included in the One Identity Quick Connect for Base Systems package.
The MySQL Connector supports the following features:
Table 14: Supported features
Allows you to read and write data in the connected data system.
Delta processing mode
Allows you to process only the data that has changed in the connected data system since the last synchronization operation, thereby reducing the overall synchronization operation time.
Allows you to synchronize user passwords from an Active Directory domain to the connected data system.
In this section:
For instructions on how to rename a connection, delete a connection, modify synchronization scope for a connection, or specify password synchronization settings for a connection, see the One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine Administrator Guide.
