Description

The current LDAP implementation of redmine only supports one LDAP server per method. For redundancy it's not pracitcable to create a second LDAP method, because in the case of a crash of the server for method1 all users connected with method1 are not able to log in anymore. So there a 2 possibilities to solve the redundancy problem:

  1. Support more than one LDAP server for an authentication method and poll the second if the first doesn't answer
  2. Poll for _ldap._tcp.domain.tld SRV records and use the returned servers (best method imo)
