LDAP TAM configuration

Hi,

We have LDAP, TAM components (Policy Server, Authorization Server) installed on one UNIX machine. and Webseal installed in another machine.

We planned to change the IP address of both machines. So, what are the necessary configuration changes we need to make inorder to accomdiate NEW ip address as LDAP host, Policy Server host, Authorization host.

Are the hostnames changing, or just the IP addresses?

What was used to configure each machine, an IP address, or a hostname?

If, for example, you installed and configured the machines using hostnames, and now the IP addresses need to change, but you are able to keep the hostname, then this might be as simple as updating the DNS to provide the "new" IP address for each hostname...

Changing IP address of WebSEAL helps me!!!!

However, we have ip address on the Policy Server configuration(pd.conf) , Authorization server (ivacld.conf)

[ivacld.conf]

ivacld.conf:host = XXX.XX.XX.XX
ivacld.conf:master-host = XXX.XX.XX.XX
ivacld.conf:azn-app-host = XXX.XX.XX.XX

ldap.conf:host = XXX.XX.XX.XX

pd.conf:user-reg-server = XXX.XX.XX.XX
pd.conf:user-reg-host = XXX.XX.XX.XX
pd.conf:master-host = XXX.XX.XX.XX

Can i change this ip address manualy? or do i need to use pdconfig utility?

Thank you very much for your help.

You can use your favorite text editor to modify the pd.conf file, however, do so while the Policy server is stopped.

When you next restart the Policy Server, it will use this file to determine the IP addresses that it should use.
