Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 119332
mod_authz_ldap cannot bind to secondary LDAP server
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:01 EST
Description of problem:
It seems that mod_authz_ldap lacks any mechanism to specify more than
one LDAP server. If that LDAP server goes down then all
authentication to the website fails. This does not fit in an
"Enterprise Operating System".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always. In the config AuthzLDAPServer takes only one argument.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load apache and mod_authz_ldap rpms for RHEL3
2.Configure AuthzLDAP* parameters
3.Shutoff your LDAP server -- you're hosed.
Thanks for reporting this.
