Hi all,

We're currently investigating the possibility for mac and linux users to
securely access AD so they can use the address book.
Unfortunately they need to specify a single DC in their application. Since
we do want to share the load to all DC's but also need availability, if for
instance one DC is in maintenance, we want to use a loadbalancing technique.

Normally when you loadbalance a webservice which uses SSL you create a
certificate based on the fqdn of the 'clustername'.
Question is, does this also work for secure ldap or will the DC refuse to
use that certificate?

Thanks,

Marcel
