Re: Active Directory on Teradata

Could you provide more information on what you are trying to accomplish? We would not "install" directory server software on a Teradata database node.

Thanks Fred for your reply.

We are going to use Kerberos in our system and we need to install an AD group on Teradata.

Could you please explain more about why you would not "install" directory server software on a Teradata database node?

Review the Security Administration Guide for your database software version, for more information regarding how to implement Kerberos authentication and directory-based authorization.

Neither the KDC nor the directory run on the database nodes themselves.
