LDAP: Using entire Domain instead of specific servers


we're using OBM 2018.11 | Build: an we're facing an issue with the LDAP configuration. If we Setup multiple Servers with the syntax


it could happen that the first Server is reachable at all, but the LDAP Service on this Server not. This leads to the issue, that OBM won't try to use the next Server for authentication, because it does only check the availability (via ping?) of the Server. Also from time to time our LDAP Server are shut down and replace by new System.

To Workaround the first issue and avoid Always adjusting the LDAP Servers in the OBM configuration, we'd like to configure our entire Domain. For some reason I haven't found the Syntax for this in the documentation and it also seems that the Internet doesn't provide the solution as well.

In our attempts to configure it the mentioned way, we just replaced the Server by the Domain Name. In further attempts we cut off the port as well as the part with "DC=[XX]??Sub". Nothing seems to work.

I woud be very glad to find someone with the same issue who coud help us.


Thanks in Advance!
