    Hi Rajendra

    I have solved that by using the HowToGuide "Configure UME for Multiple LDAP Data Sources". There you find information about implementing one or multiple LDAP Servers in the portal. In general you have to configure LDAP properties in UM Configuration. You have to know

    - which type of LDAP you use (MS ADS, Novell, etc.)

    - if the LDAP has a flat or deep hierachy

    - if you want Read-only/ not read only permissions on the LDAP Server(s).

    In UM configuration you can also test if the LDAP connection is working.

    Hope that helps.

      The documentation have examples for what you want to do:

      Click to portal and then

      Portal Platform ->

      System Administration ->

      User Management Configuration ->

      Customizing a UME Data Source Configuration ->

      Example of Data Source Configuration Files

      But it makes more sense to put all your users in the same place. Why do you need users in two different locations?
