Transparent LDAP Authentication for Informix

The Informix (AVL) customer T-Systems/Deutsche Telekom AG requests transparent LDAP authentication for Informix.

Last year T-Systems/Deutsche Telekom AG replaced the complete HP-UX hardware for the application REBELL/Ironman by IBM Power AIX machines. One of the main reasons for choosing IBM hardware was their satisfaction with the Informix database server.

This IBM AIX environment is configured for using LDAP authentication, it works transparently for services Secure Shell (ssh) etc. To clarify if LDAP authentication works with Informix two PMRs were opened, PMR 69417.070.724 for Informix and PMR 00088.077.724 for AIX. Unfortunately it turned out a transparent LDAP authentication for IBM Informix does not work in customers environment.

This shortage is hardly to understand since IBM DB2 LUW supports transparent LDAP authentication since version 9.7 which was available in 2009.
