Hello Mike,

I tried to use the name of domain and WINS so I was not dependent on 1 DC.
But I need to set about ten different domain names (they are all trusted).

So as far as I know it is not possible yet, am I right?

Probably I will use the alternative with DC because users from different
domains can be authenticated. If domain controller is down our monitoring
tools will inform us and we can change web.xml and redirect it on another

As soon as possible the new functionality will be released I will add it
to our web applications.
