Is it it possible to specify multiple ldap hosts to authenticate against? I have several different geographical locations with different ldap servers/users and I would like to be able to have our Liferay installation check login credentials against any of them.

TIA,

Daren

Have a look at the links below for some info on how to setup an Authentication Pipeline where only one Authenticator has to return success on login.

It is possible but it would require customization. My recommendation would be to create your own Authenticator class that attempts to authenticate the user against multiple ldap servers. I would probably copy the LDAPAuth module and customize it.

It's an old story: currently, most of portals and/or CMS (particularily open-source) don't do that.
Finally, we made this on a 5.2.3 ("Import" only, with the ability to have different mappings attributes for each provider).
