smldapsetup not responding

    Hi All,


    I have installed siteminder policy server version 12.51.3 on RHEL server, Installation was pretty normal and successful.


    I tried to configure policy store setup using smldapsetup reg command. But the command is not responding.


    smldapsetup reg -d”LDAP User” -wMyPassword123


    Not registered in sm.registry file.


    Did anyone face this issue before ?


    Can I directly edit the s.registry file to setup policy store and keystore ? How can I do that ?

    Right now I donot have smconsole - Policy Server management console (Xwindow problem) that's why I tried smldapsetup to configure. But it failed.


    Thank you

    I think it is the rootDN which may be causing the issue here.


    You need to provide the complete DN in this format <o=security,c=com>


    smldapsetup reg -h127.0.0.1 -p1111 -d"cn=Directory Manager" -wMyPassword123 -ro=security,c=com


    smldapsetup reg -h127.0.0.1 -p1111 -d"cn=Directory Manager" -wMyPassword123 -rdc=security,dc=com

    If it does not resolve, please suggest the below

    • Version / Type of Policy Store.
    • Is SSL enabled
    • Is there any intermediate component e.g. Directory Proxy etc.

    Let know if this helps!

    that ending "" looks funny, please double  check your server.


    have you tried to trace this?


    yes it is possible to  edit the sm.registry file, but better to  adjust the  smconsole instead.
