LDAP priority and weighting

Configure priority of client requests

There may be various reasons for restricting the LDAP (client) requirements on a DC.

For example, if it is the PDC. In order to relieve this, the weighting and the priority can be adjusted. Or if a DC is to be dismantled, but the LDAP requirements on this DC are still very high. Or if a DC is very heavily loaded by an application.

We're talking about the priority and weighting values ​​for the (DNS) SRV records. With these values LdapSrvWeight, LdapSrvPriority we control the LDAP requirements on a site if there are multiple DCs.

Domain controllers with the highest weighting and lowest priority are addressed first.
