We have a primary and secondary (failover) ldap servers. Can
CFLDAP be coded such that both get searched or the secondary
searched only if the first fails? I was thinking that the server
attribute might work as a comma-delimited list. That does not seem
to be the case. If CFLDAP does not allow the specification of more
than one server, I am sure I can code so that there are two calls
and the second only called if the first fails. That just seems like
an ugly solution.
I do not remember the details, but for my previous job we
used a server
name that could resolve to any of the LDAP [aka active
servers as required. The network operations set this up and
provided me with the domain name to put into the server
all the fail-over, etc was handled by the network.
Thanks, Ian. I walked through what I was doing with the LDAP
(AD) administrator and he asked if it was possible to list more
than one. So, I presume that the network is not set up the same.
I'll follow-up, however.
