Installation problem when uses federated, file-based registry

Jaegon Yoo (9611314) | asked Sep 20 '12, 1:33 p.m.


I'm using federated, file-based registry in WAS to authenticate user for RTC.

I successfully authenticated admin user managed by WAS to configure JTS.

However when I set up 'User Registry' in JTS, there are options.

- Tomcat User Database


- Non-LDAP External Registry

Q1) Which option should I choose when I use federated, file-based registry in WAS?

Q2) When I choose Non-LDAP External Registory or Tomcat user Database for user registry, it says "You need to be authenticated as a user from LDAP to import your user and assign licenses. Ensure the application container settings are configured correctly for LDAP, restart the server, and log in with a user from the LDAP directory to continue"

What should I do?

Any idea?

Appreciate your help.

I'm having the same issue, I have created users and groups in WAS and mapped them for each application, however I keep getting the same message as above when I try to create the new user in setup step 6

Hello Chris
I solved this problem.
You need to input user currently logging in setup step 6 instead of user that you want to create.
Help this helps.

You should choose "Non-External LDAP Registry" and then enter in the information for the user you are logged in as. This will create your logged-in user in your database and allow setup to continue.
