Connecting to multiple LDAP servers for authentication
How do you connect to multiple LDAP servers for authentication in IBM Rational Team Concert?
In some deployments, there may be multiple LDAP servers to control different departments, and authentication may need to occur against both servers.
Authentication is not controlled by Rational Team Concert, but rather the application server. Therefore, Tomcat or WAS would need to support connecting to multiple LDAP Servers for authentication.
WebSphere currently supports connecting to multiple LDAP Servers in a 'Hybrid LDAP' state.
Tomcat 5.5.x, which is bundled with RTC 3.x, does not currently support connecting to multiple LDAP servers for authentication. In versions 6.x and above, Tomcat supports a CombinedRealm configuration where the application can be authenticated against multiple LDAP Servers. RTC 4.x currently supports Tomcat version 7.0.
