To get attributes for *every* user from multiple ldap instances, you
could add one data connector per ldap instance to
<resolver:DataConnector id="LDAP1" ldapURL="ldap://ldap1.example.org" ...
<resolver:DataConnector id="LDAP2" ldapURL="ldap://ldap2.example.org" ...
for attributes which exist on more than one ldap instance :
<resolver:AttributeDefinition id="affiliation" ...
<resolver:Dependency ref="LDAP1" />
<resolver:Dependency ref="LDAP2" />
If I understand correctly.
Obviously, this would result in more ldap searches, unnecessarily, but
I would think that would be okay.
