Configuring user repositories on the remote search server

The remote search server must have the same user repositories that are configured on the HCL server. For example, if your HCL server is configured to an IBM Directory Server LDAP in a federated repository configuration, then the remote search server must also be configured to the same IBM Directory Server LDAP in a federated repository configuration.

After the user repositories are configured the same between the HCL server and the remote search server, it is possible to configure a dedicated search user from the repository as described in Setting the search user ID.

Follow the WebSphere® Application Server product documentation Configuring Lightweight Directory Access Protocol in a federated repository configuration to configure LDAP settings on the remote search server.

After configuring user repositories on the remote search server, you must enable single-sign on (SSO) between HCL and the remote search server. For details about how to do this step, refer to Creating a single-sign on domain between HCL Portal and the remote search service.
