Following table shows a summary of the registry key used by SiteMinder with a brief description for each of the keys.

 

Notes :

  • This is a work in progress and will be updated on a regular basis.
  • The registry path are based on WIN32 based system. For WIN64 the path will be inside a "wow6432node" node.

         For e.g. for WIN32 : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\netegrity\SiteMinder\CurrentVersion\Database\SessionServer

         For WIN64 : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\wow6432node\netegrity\SiteMinder\CurrentVersion\Database\SessionServer

  • Solaris and Linux paths are based on WIN32
  • SiteMinder version referenced is : R12.52SP1. Some of the registry entries might not be applicable to the older release.
  • For any clarifications, you can put a comment below.
