Frequently Asked Questions

Where are my profiles and settings stored? How can I copy them to another PC?

Profiles, credentails and other settings are stored in the metabase.stg file locatedin the %LOCALAPPDATA%\Softerra\LDAP Administrator 4 folder. This file isnot human readable, so it can't be read or manually edited. To copy your profilesfrom one workstation to another, use Load/Save Configuration dialog orjust copy the metabase.stg file to an appropriate folder of a destination PC.

I can't connect to my server via a secure (SSL) connection. What's wrong? What canI handle that?

SSL is a tough issue, which requires certain knowledge to be able to perform necessaryactions on the server side in order to install SSL support. If you aren't familiarwith X.509 and SSL in particular, you expose yourself to a high risk of making amistake while issuing a server certificate or adjusting your server configuration,which will make it impossible to connect to the server. Our experience shows thatin 99% of cases, SSL problems occur due to the server-side issues. To troubleshootyour SSL issues, try running your server or SCHANNEL API (an SSL implementation used by Softerra LDAPAdministrator) in the debug mode.

Is there a command-line client? How can I schedule export of my LDAP server data?

There is a command-line tool that comes with Softerra LDAP Administrator package.It's called laimex.exe that is localed in the same folder where SofterraLDAP Administrator is installed. Command line options for laimex.exe aredescribed in the Softerra LDAP Administrator Help. laimex.exe can be usedtogether with Windows scheduler to perfrom export/import LDAP data operations automatically.
