Instead of explicitly specifying all backend LDAP servers in the configuration as LDAP external servers, you can configure PingAuthorize Server to automatically discover its backend servers.
Important: This feature requires that all backend LDAP servers be PingDirectory Servers running version 126.96.36.199 or later. Automatic backend discovery is not supported for PingDirectoryProxy Server or third-party LDAP servers.
To configure automatic backend discovery, you must complete these tasks:
- Join the PingAuthorize Server to the same topology as the PingDirectory Servers.
- Configure the PingAuthorize Server's load-balancing algorithm with an LDAP external server template. This template provides the connection and health check settings that PingAuthorize Server uses for all PingDirectory Servers.
- Configure the topology registry entry for each PingDirectory Server to indicate the name of the PingAuthorize Server load-balancing algorithm.
