  • Active Directory with multiple Domain Controllers via Global Catalog

    When several domains are organized in different domain controllers, all records can be reached when using the Global Catalog. The advantage is that instead of having one LDAP/AD configuration for every domain controller, one connection that connects to the Global Catalog is sufficient.

    Connect to Global Catalog

    When configuring the basic information in a new LDAP Connection, specify the host without any protocol. Further specify 3268 as port number.

    The further configuration does not differ from a usual LDAP/AD one.
