3.4 Binding LDAP and MDAC
As discussed in previous sections, users and groups are created in WebSphere
Portal and maintained in LDAP. The Mobile Devices Administration Center or
MDAC retrieves this information from LDAP and keeps a copy in its control
database DSYCTLDB.
In MDAC, it is possible to refresh this binding if any changes take place in
WebSphere Portal.
򐂰 To refresh group information, right-click the Groups folder and select
Refresh WPS LDAP groups.
򐂰 To refresh user information, right-click the Users folder and select Refresh
WPS LDAP users.
By doing the refreshing, if new users or groups are added, they will be brought
into the MDAC and its control database.
