ePO - Multiple LDAP servers registered

Hey everyone,

Just a quick thought.  Does anyone have multiple AD LDAP servers configured for failover?  Any risk/benefit?

you can point it to a site instead of a specific server.

Hey Andre,

Youre talking about a load balanced vip right?  Something like ldap.company.com?

not at all...

registered server, ldap, under "server name" specify the fqdn domain name and then specify the site under "site-name"

Re: ePO - Multiple LDAP servers registered

Registering/unregistering ldap servers in epo can have negative consequenses if you are using drive encryption and syncing ldap users.  We typically would recommend one ldap server per domain - you can specifiy the domain rather than ldap server, which it would use dns to locate any ldap servers for that domain.  In the case of a sub domain that the epo server is not a part of, it is recommended to add that dns server to the network interface dns record on the nic as well as append dns suffix for the other domain.  If you have questions on what kind of impact that would have on encryption users, you can get with the encryption team for more detail on that.
